Is Kenton County Coroner's Jury 
Verdict In Death of Charles 

Bridges At Bracht 

A coroner's Inquest In the death 
of Charles Bridges, age 53, on the 
night of December 20th, in the house 
of Randall Mullins, on the Bracht- 
Piner Highway, near Bracht, Ken- 
ton county, was held last Wednes- 
day in the Covington Police Court 
room, Coroner James P. Riffe pre- 
siding. Twenty witnesses were heard 
before a Jury. 

Contradictory evidence given by 
several witnesses, strengthened a be- 
lief in the minds of the jury that 
Bridges was the victim of robbery 
and violence before he was burned 
to death. Witnesses said that Brid- 
ges had more than $80 on his per- 
son the night of his death. 

The Coroner's jury, after hearing 
the evidence, recommended that 
Everett Belew, age 31, turckman, 
living at Bracht, be held to the 
grand jury under $2,000 bond, which 
was furnished. 

Belew, when hearing of the charge 
went to Sheriff Louis Vogt, Wed- 
nesday and surrendered, who told 
him to return home, as there way 
no warrent issued at that time 
Sheriff Vogt said Belew told him 
"if you get a warrant just let me 
know and I'll come down and ex- 
ecute a bond." 

A hearing was set for Wednesday 
Jan. 6th, before County Judge John 
B. Read, and should Belew be hel^ 
over, the case will come up before 
Kenton Grand Jury late this month

the Divine gift to man filled the air 
and many hearts were filled with

all, the spirit of "Peace and good will 
toward men." We wish to call ic

a perfect day to three Sparta chil-

raised money by subscription and

and two brothers who must spend 
their entire lives between the walls

upon a casket, but they look divine 
in a sick room. Decorating the a-

sentiment, yet flowers always look 
more glorious in the hands of tae

attitude toward life. Any kindness 
with which' we may ease the hard-

be in the present tense and not the

Mystery Surrounds Death of Floyd 
Tomlin Near Williamstown 

Grant county authorities are mys- 
tified over the death of Floyd Tom- 
lin, farmer, age 38, whose remains 
were found at the side of the Dixie 
Highway, with a broken neck, Sat- 
urday night. His body was discov- 
ered by a woman passing by in an 
auto and she informed Grant county 

Although there was no bruiess or 
other marks of violence than the 
broken neck, authorities were mys- 
tified at finding Tomlin's pocket- 
book several feet from his still warm 
body. There was only 62 cents in 
the pocketbook, but when seen at 
9:30 he had bills in his possession. 
Coroner Claud Neal conducted an 
investigation Sunday. He returned 
no verdict. However, toe pointed out 
death may have been caused by a 
misstep and that if Tomlin had been 
carrying his pocketbook in his sand 
he would probably have thrown it 
aside as he fell. 

Tomlin had lived four miles east 
of Williamstown on the Hod Ridge 
road, where he had a farm. He is, 
survived by two brothers and three 
sisters. His funeral was held at 
Unity Baptist church and buried hi

pursuing life's journey to a ripe old, 
age, would ask for no greater boon 
than to die together, passing over

meet their Great Redeemer.

The widest, most comfortable seats in 
the history of automobiles are being 
offered by auto makers this year. Where 
in the past the motor car manufacturers 
bragged about "3-passenger seats", this 
year some seats are nearlyroomy enough 
for four persons. Fifty-five inch front 
seats make their appearance on the new 

Hudsons and Terraplanes, and a new 
idea in "yard" sticks— a fifty-five inch 
"yard" stick— is being used to dramatize 
the great width of these 1937 automobile 
seats. The above picture shows a Hud- 
son representative using the fifty-five 
inch "yard" stick to demonstrate the 
wide front seat in a Terraplane.

Old Fashioned Tonics Give 
Way to Proper Foods. 


T"\TETS or drug's? The pendulum 
■-* swings. A generation ago the 
American people dosed themselves 
liberally with patent products, for 
definite ailments and for that "run- 
down feeling." The discovery of the 
importance of proper diet both for 
the prevention of illness and, to 
some extent, for its curative powers, 
especially after the discussion of the 
vitamin question had become com- 
mon, resulted in a new attitude 
toward the foodj question. It also 
resulted in a new type of medicinal 
products which, while offered us at 
drug stores, are actually food con- 

Now forms of codliver oil for the 
sake of its vitamins A and D con- 
tent, haliver oil with its especially 
huh vitamin A as well as D content, 
sometimes in the irradiated form,

of vitamin D. are now often pre-

scribed by physicians. Calcium and 
phosphorus concentrates are now 
available, prepared from fresh milk, 
and are particularly useful in cases 
where milk itself can not be used in 
the amounts necessary, as well as 
in special conditions such as preg- 
nancy and certain skin diseases. 

Instead of old - fashioned tonics, 
concentrated foods made from co- 
conuts, bananas and milk are often 
regommended. For certain condi- 
tions, especially in intestinal dis- 
turbances, vitamin B and C concen- 
trates prepared from yeast or wheat 
germ are available. You may even 
get in capsule form combinations 
of four vitamins, A, B, D and G. In 
case you can not take vitamins A 
and D in oil or capsule form, you 
may now take them through injec- 
tions directly into the muscles. The 
fact that these products are avail- 
able does not, of course, make it 
any less important to choose a well 
rounded diet which, excepting in 
! the case of children who need extra 
vitamin D. will usually prevent con- 
ditions which need special dietary^ 
drug treatment.

If it is desired to discharge an

may be tried. The master of the

Production of gold in the country, 
he pointed out, commenced in 1886 
and the following year 19,080 fine 
ounces were produced; five years 
later, the output had increased un- 
til it was slightly over a million 
ounces; in 1897 it had reached two 
and a half million ounces; in 1904 
more than three and one-half mil- 
lion ounces, and in 1932 11 million 
ounces. Since 1932 production has 
'declined to 10 million ounces an- 
nually. Records indicate that of all 
the gold produced in the world 
since the Middle ages, since 1886 
about one-quarter has been pro- 
duced on the Witwatersrand.

Population to Near Peak 
of 135,000,000 by 1950 

Washington. — The slowing down 
of the growth in population, re- 
vealed by the Bureau of the Census, 
lends credibility to forecasts by gov- 
ernment sociologists that population 
may reach a peak of 135,000,000 
perspns by 1950, become stationary 
for a while, and then decline. 

The decrease in population growth 
is attributed chiefly to immigration 
restrictions. A contributing factor 
has been the declining birthrate. 
Births have increased slightly in the 
last two years, but the increase is 
regardea as a temporary interrup- 
tion of a long time down trend. 

The population slightly more than 
doubled between 1890 and 1935 to 
127,521,000 estimated as of July I, 
1935, by the Bureau of Census. Cur- 
rently, the population numbers 
more than 128,000,000 persons.

apartment when 
Vance receives an anonymous telephone 
message Informing him of a "disturbing 
psychological tension at Professor Ephri- 
am Garden's apartment" advising that 
he read up on radio active sodium, con- 
sult a passage in the Aeneid and coun- 
seling that "Equanimity is essential " 
Professor Garden is famous in chemical 
research. The message, decoded by 
Vance, reminds him that Professor Gar- 
den s son Floyd and his puny cousin. 
Woode Swift, are addicted to horse-rac- 
ing. Vance says that "Equanimity" Is 
a horse running next day In the River- 
mont handicap. Vance is convinced that 
the message was sent by Dr. Siefert. 
the Garden's family physician. He ar- 
ranges to have lunch next day at the 
Gardens' penthouse. 

Garden leaned over and threw the 
amplifier switch up, and there was 
silence in the room. He turned to 
his cousin. "Why don't you take 
Vance and Mr. Van Dine upstairs, 
and show them around the garden? 
. . . They might." he added with 
good-natured sarcasm, "be interest- 
ed in your lonely retreat on the roof, 
where you listen in to your fate. 
Sneed has probably got it arranged 
for you." 

Swift rose with alacrity. 

"Damned glad of the chance," he 
returned surlily. "Your manner to- 
day rather annoys me. Floyd." And 
he led the way down the hall and 

up the stairs to the roof -garden. 
Vance and I following.. 

The stairway was narrow and 
semicircular, and led upward from 
the hallway near the front entrance. 
In glancing back up the hall, to- 
ward the drawing-room, I noticed 
that no section of that room was 
visible from the stair end of the 
hall. I made this mental note idly 
at the time, but I mention it here 
because the fact played a very defi- 
nite part in the tragic events which 
were to follow. 

At the head of this narrow stair- 
way we turned left into a corridor, 
barely four feet wide, at the end of 
which was a door leading into a 
large room — the only room on the 
roof. This spacious and beautiful- 
ly appointed study, with high win- 
dows, on all four sides, was used by 
Professor Garden, Swift informed 
us, as a library and private experi- 
mental laboratory. Near the door 
to this room, on the left wall 'of 
the corridor, was another door, of 
calamine, which, I learned later, led 
into a small storeroom built to hold 

Half-way down the corridor, on 
the right, was another large cala- 
mine weather door which led out 
to the roof. This door had been 
propped open, for the sun was 
bright and the day mild. Swift 
preceded us into one of the loveliest 
skyscraper gardens I have ever 

We walked leisurely about the 
garden, smoking. Swift was a dif- 
ficult man to talk to, and as the 
minutes went by he became more 
and more distrait. After a while he 
glanced apprehensively at his wrist- 

"We'd better be going down." he 
said. "They'll be coming out for 
the first race before long." 

Vance gave him an appraising 
look and rose. 

"What about that sanctum sanc- 
torum of yours which your cousin 
mentioned?" he asked lightly. 

"Oh, that . . " Swift forced 
an embarrassed smile. "It's that 
red chair over there against the 
wall, next to the small table . . . 
But I don't see why Floyd should 
spoof about it. The crowd down- 
stairs always rags me when I lose, 
and it irritates me. I'd much rath- 
er be alone when I get the results." 
"Quite understandable," nodded 
Vance with sympathy. 

"You see," the man went on rath- 
er pathetically, "I frankly play the 
ponies for the money— the others 
downstairs can afford to take heavy 
losses, but I happen to need the 
cash just now." 

Vance had stepped over to the 
little table on which stood a desk 
telephone which had, instead of the 
ordinary receiver, what is known as 
;-« head receiver— that is, a flat disk 
j ear-phone attached to a curved met- 
al band to go over the head. 

"Your retreat is well equipped," 
commented Vance. 

"Oh, yes. This is an extension 
of the news-service phone down- 
stairs; and there's also a plug-in 
tor a radio, and another for an 
electric plate." 

He took the ear-phone from the 
hook and, adjusting the band .over 
his head, listened for a moment. 
i "Nothing new yet at Rivermont," 
he mumbled. He removed the ear- 
phone with nervous impatience and 
tossed it to the table. "Anyway 
we'd better get down." And he 
walked toward the door by which 
we had come out in the garden. 

duced to them by Garden. 

The man was Cecil Kroon, about 
thirty-five, immaculately attired 
and sleek, with smooth, regular fea- 
tures and a very narrow waxed 
mustache. He was quite blond, and 
his eyes were a cold steely blue. 
The woman, whose name was 
Nadge Weatherby; was about the 
same age as Kroon, tall and slen- 
der, and with a marked tendency 
toward theatricalism in both her at- 
tire and her makeup. Her cheeks 
were heavily rouged and her lips 
crimson. Her eyelids were shaded 
with green, and her eyebrows had 
been plucked and replaced with fine 
penciled lines. 

Garden looked up and motioned 
to us — he was holding the receiver 
of the black telephone to his ear. 
Kroon went to the small bar and 
mixed two drinks which he took 
back to his table, setting one down 
before Miss Weatherby. 

"I say, Floyd," he called out to 
Garden, "Zalia coming today?" 

"Absolutely," Garden told him. 
"She was all stirred up when she 
phoned this morning. Full of sure 

"Well, what about it?" came a 
vivacious feminine voice from down 
the hall; and the next moment a 
swaggering, pretty girl was stand- 
ing in the archway, her hands on 
her muscular boyish hips. "I've 
concluded I can't pick any winners 
myself, so why not let the other 
guy pick 'em for me? . . . Hello, 
everybody," she threw in parenthet- 
ically . . . "But Floyd, old thing, 
I really have a humdinger in the 
first at Rivermont today. This tip 
didn't come from a stable-boy, ei- 
ther. It came from the stew- 
ard—a friend of dad's. And am I 
going to smear that hay-burner!" 
"Right-o, Baby - face," grinned 
Garden. "Step into our parlor." 

She started forward, and hesitat- 
ed momentarily as she caught sight 
of Vance and me. 

"Oh, by the way, Zalia."— Garden 
put the receiver ddwn and rose— 
"let me present Mr. Vance and Mr. 
Van Dine . . . Miss Graem." 

The girl staggered back dramat- 
ically and lifted her hands to her 
head in mock panic. 

"Oh, Heaven protect me'" she 
exclaimed. "Philo Vance, the de- 
tective! Is this a raid?" 
Vance bowed graciously. 
"Have no fear. Miss Graem," he 
smiled. "I'm merely a fellow crim- 
inal And, as you see, I'm drag- 
ging Mr. Van Dine along the down- 
ward path with me." 

At this moment Garden pressed 
forward the key on the switch box, 
and in a moment the voice we had 
heard earlier was again coming 
through the amplifier. 

"Coming out at Rivermont, and 
here's the new line: 20, 6, 4, 8 to 5 
scratch twice, 3, 20, 15. 10, 15 . . . 
Who was it wanted the run-down at 
Garden cut the amplifier. 
He turned to his cousin. "And 
you, Woody?" 

Swift shook his head. "Not this 

"Saving it all for Equanimity, 
eh? Right-o." 

Despite the superficial buoyancy 
of the gathering, I could detect an 
undercurrent of extreme tension 
and expectancy; and I made men- 
tal note of various little occurrences 
during the first hour or so. 

One incident connected with Swift 
puzzled me greatly. I had noticed 
that he and Zalia Graem had not 
spoken to each other during the 
entire time they had been in the 
drawing - room. Once they had 
brushed against each other near 
Garden's table, and each, as if in- 
stinctively, had drawn resentfully to 
one side. Garden had cocked hit 
head at them irritably and said: 

"Aren't you two on speaking 
terms yet — or is this feud to be per- 
manent? . . . Why don't you kiss 
and make up and let the gaiety 
of the party be unanimous?" 

Miss Graem had proceeded as if 
nothing had happened, and Swift 

The Two Women Began a Low, 
Whispered Conversation. 

Zalia Graem's table, where the two 
women began a low. whispered con- 

Garden's inquiring glance moved 
from one to another of the party. 

At this moment a young woman 
of unusual attractiveness appeared 
in the archway and stood there hes- 
itantly, looking shyly at Garden. 
She wore a nurse's uniform of im- 
maculate white, with white shoes 
and stockings, and a starched white 
cap set at a grotesque angle, on 
the back of her head. She could not 
have been over thirty; yet there was 
a maturity in her calm, brown eyes, 
and evidence of great capability in 
the reserve of her expression and in 
the firm contour of her chin. She 
wore no make-up, and her chestnut 
hair was parted, in the middle- and 
brushed back simply over her ears. 
She presented a striking contrast 
to the two other women in the room. 

"Hello, Miss Beeton," Garden 
greeted her pleasantly. "I thought 
you'd be having the afternoon off, 
since the mater's well enough to go 
shopping . . . What can I do for 
you? Care to join the madhouse and 
hear the races" 

"Oh, no. I've too many things to 
do." She moved her head slightly 

to indicate the rear of the house. 
"But if you don't mind, Mr. Gar- 
den," she added timidly, "I would 
like to bet two dollars on Azure 
Star to win, and to come in second, 
and to come in third." 

Every one smiled covertly, and 
Garden chuckled. 

Vance, who had been watching 
the girl with more interest than he 
usually showed in a woman, leaned 

"I say, Garden, just a moment." 
He spoke incisively. "I think Miss 
Beeton's choice is an excellent one 
— however she may have arrived 
at it." Then he nodded to the nurse. 
"Miss Beeton, I'll be very happy to 
see that your bet on Azure Star is 
placed." He turned again to Gar- 
den. "Will your book-maker take 
$200 across the board on Azure 

"Will he? He'll grab it with both 
hands," Garden replied. "But 
why— ?" 

"Then it's settled," said Vance 
quickly. "That's my bet. And two 
dollars of it in each position be- 
longs to Miss Beeton." 

"That's perfect with me, Vance." 
And Garden jotted down the wager 
in his ledger. 

I noticed that during the brief 
moments that Vance was speaking 
to the nurse and placing his wager 
on Azure Star, Swift was glowering 
at him through half-closed eyes. It 
was not until later that I under- 
stood the significance of that look. 
The nurse cast a quick glance at 
Swift, and then spoke with sim- 
ple directness. 

"You are very kind, Mr. Vance." 
Then she added: "I will not pretend 
I don't know who you are, even if 
Mr. Garden had not called you by 
name." She stood looking straight 
at Vance with calm appraisal; 
then she turned and went back down 
the hall . '- r 


Garden did not take his eyes from 
the man's face. He said merely: 
*T think you're a damned fool." 
"Your opinion of me doesn't in- 
terest me either." Swift's eyelids 
drooped menacingly, and a hard 
look came into his set face. 
Garden capitulated. 
"It's your funeral," he said, and 
turning his back on his cousin, he 
took up the gray hand set again 
and spun the dial with determina- 

Swift walked back to the bar and 
poured himself another generous 
drink of Bourbon. 

"Hello, Hannix," Garden said into 
the transmitter. "I'm back again, 
with an additional bet. Hold on to 
your chair or you'll lose your bal- 
ance. I want ten grand on Equanim- 
ity to win . . . Yes, that's what I 
said: ten G-strings— ten thousand 
iron men. Can you handle it? Odds 
probably won't be over two to one 
. . . Right-o." 

He replaced -the receiver and tilt- 
ed back in his chair just as Swift, 
headed for the hall, was passing 

Garden, apparently deeply per- 
turbed, kept his eyes on the re- 
treating figure. Then, as if on sud- 
den impulse, he stood up quickly 
and called out: "Just a minute, 
Woody. I want to say a word to 
you." And he stepped after him. 

I saw Garden put his arm around 
Swift's shoulder as the two. dis- 
appeared down the hall. 

When Garden returned to the 
room his face was a trifle pale, and 
his eyes were downcast. As he ap- 
proached our table he -shook his 
head dejectedly. 

"I tried to argue with him," he 
remarked to Vance. "But it was 
no use; he wouldn't listen to reason. 
He turned nasty . . . Poor devil! 
If Equanimity doesn't come in he's 
done for." He looked directly at 
Vance* "I wonder if I did the right 
thing in placing that bet for him. 
But, after all, he's of age." 

A bell rang somewhere in the 
apartment, and a few moments lat- 
er Sneed appeared in the archway. 
"Pardon me, sir," he said to Gar- 
den, "but Miss Graem is wanted on 
the other telephone." 

Zalia Graem stood up quickly and 
raised one hand to her forehead in 
a gesture of dismay. 

"Who on earth or in the waters 
under the earth can that be?" Her 
face cleared. "Oh, I know." Then 
she stepped up to Sneed. "I'll take 
the call in the den." And she hur- 
ried from the room. 

Garden a few moments later 
turned in his chair and announced: 
"They're coming out at River- 
mont. Say your prayers, children 

As the radio tubes warmed up, 
McElroy's well-known voice gained 
in volume over the loud speaker: 

"... and Equanimity is now 
making trouble at the post. Took the 
cue from Head Start . , . Now 
they're both back in their stalls- 
it looks as if we might get a— Yes! 
They're off! And to a good even 
start. Hyjinx has dashed into the 
lead; Azure Star comes next; and 
Heat Lighting is close behind. The

quick, indignant glance.

"The great moment approaches!" 
Garden announced, and though he 
spoke with sentenious gaiety, I could 
detect signs of strain in his man- 

Kroon rose, finished the drink 
which stood on the table before him, 
and dabbing his mouth with a neat- 
ly folded handkerchief which he took 
from his breast pocket, he moved 
toward the archway. 

"My mind was made up yester- 
day." He spoke across the room. 

Swift stood up and walked to the 
cabinet with its array of bottles. He 
filled a whiskey glass with Bourbon 
I and drank it down. Then he walked 
I slowly to the table where his cousin 
sat. Garden had just finished the 
call to Hannix. 

"I'll give you my bet now, Floyd," 
Swift said hoarsely. He pressed one 
finger on the table, as if for empha- 
sis. "I want $10,000 on Equanimity 
to win." 

Garden's eyes moved anxiously 
to the other. 

"I was afraid of that, Woody," 

he said in a troubled tone. "But 

if I were you—" 

"I'm not asking you tor advice," 

• Swift interrupted in a cold steady 

voice; "I'm asking you to place a 

others are bunched. I can't tell one 
from the other yet. Wait a second. 
Here they come past us — and it's 
Hyjinx on top now, by two lengths; 
and behind her is Train Time; and— 
yes, it's Sublimate, by a head, or 
a nose, or a neck — it doesn't mat- 
ter — it's Sublimate anyway. And 
there's Risky Lad creeping up on 
Sublimate . . . And now they're go- 
ing round the fist turn, with Hyjinx 
still in the lead. The relative posi- 
tions of the ones out front haven't 
changed yet . . . They're in the 
back stretch, and Hyjinx is still 
ahead by half a length; Train Time 
has moved up and holds his second 
position by a length and a half 
ahead of Roving Flirt, who's in 
third place. Azure Star is a length 
behind Roving Flirt Equanimity 
is pocketed." 

At this point in the broadcast 
Zalia Graem appeared suddenly in 
the archway and stood with her eyes 
fixed on the radio, her hands sunk 
in the pockets of her tailored jacket 
"... They're rounding the far 
turn. Equanimity has improved his 
position and is getting into his fa- 
mous stride. Hyjinx has dropped 
back and Roving Flirt has taken 
the lead by a head, with Train 
Time second, by a length, in front 
of Azure Star, who is running third 
and making a grand effort . . . 
And now they're in the stretch. 
Azure Star has come to the front 
and is a full length in the lead. 
Train Time is making a great bid 
for this classic and is still in sec- 
ond place, a length behind Azure 
Star. Roving Flirt is right behind 
him. Hyjinx has dropped back and 
it looks as if she was no longer a 
serious contender. Equanimity is 
pressing hard and is now in sixth 
place. He hasn't much time, but 
he's running a beautiful race and 
may come up front yet. . . . And 
here they come to the finish. The 
leaders are straight bu t — the re 
won't be much change. Just a sec- 
ond. Here they come . . . and ... 
the winner is Azure Star by two 
lengths. Next is Roving Flirt. And 
a length behind him is Train Time. 
Upper Shelf finished fourth ..." 
"Not sueh a hot race," Miss 
Graem remarked with a toss of 
her head. "I'll just about break 
even . . . Now I'll go and finish 
my phone call." And she turned 
back down the hall. 

Garden seemed ill at ease and, 
for the second time that afternoon, 
mixed himself a highball. 

Just then Mrs. Garden bustled 
into the room. 

"Don't tell me I'm too late!" the 
pleaded excitedly. 

"All over but the O. K.. mater," 
Garden informed her. 

"And what did 1 3b?" The wom- 
an came forward and dropped 
wearily into an empty chair. 

"The usual," grinned Garden. "A 
Grand Score? Your noble steed 
didn't score at all. Condolences. 
But it's not official yet. We'll be 
getting the O. K. in a minute now." 

"Oh, dear!" sighed Mrs. Garden 

"V.\.J," said Garden, "Mr. Vance, 
the eminent dopester of crimes and 
ponies, can now take a luxurious 
vacation. He's the possessor of 
thirty-six hundred and forty dollars 
—of which thirty-six dollars and 
forty cents goes to our dear nurse 
. . . And Woode, of course . '." 
His voice trailed off. 

"What did Woody do?" demanded 
Mrs. Garden, sitting up stiffly in 
her "chair. 

"I'm frightfully sorry, mater,"— 
her son groped for words— "but 
Woody didn't use his head. I tried 
to dissuade him, but it was no 
go . . . " •> 

"WeTirwhaFdid Woody do?" per- 
sisted Mrs. Garden. 

Garden hesitated, and before he 
could formulate an answer, a para- 
lyzing sound, like a pistol shot, 
broke the tense silence. 

Vance was the first on his feet. 
His face was grim as he moved rap- 
idly toward the archway. I followed 
him, and just behind came Gar- 
den. As I turned into the hallway 
I saw the others in the drawing- 
room get up and move-forward. ~ ~- 
As we hurried down the hall Zalia 
Graem opened the den door. 

"What was that?" she asked, her 
frightened , £yes staring, at us. 

"We don't know yet," Vai.ce told 

In the bedroom door, at the lower 
end of the hall, stood the nurse, 
with a look of inquiring concern on 
her otherwise placid face. 

"You'd better come along. Miss 
Beeton," Vance said, as he started 
up the stairs two at a time. "You 
may be needed.'.' 

Vance swung into the upper corri- 
dor and stopped momentarily at the 
door on the right, which led out 
upon the roof. This door was still 
propped open, and after a hasty 
preliminary survey through it, he 
stepped quickly out into the garden. 
The sight that met oui' eyes was 
not wholly unexpected. There, in 
the low chair which he had pointed 
out to us earlier that afternoon, sat 
Woode Swift, slumped down, with 
his head thrown back at an un- 
natural angle against the rattan 
head-rest, and his legs straight out 
before him. He still wore the ear- 
phone. His eyes were open and 
staring; his lips were slightly part- 
ed; and his thick glasses were tilted 
forward on his nose. 

In his right temple was a small 
ugly hole beneath which two or 
three drops of already coagulating 
blood had formed. His right arm 
hung limp over the side of the chair, 
and on the colored tiling just under 
his hand lay a small pearl-handled 

Vance immediately approached 
the motionless figure, and the rest 
of us crowded about him. Zalia 
Graem, who had forced her way 

forward and was now standing be- 
side Vance, swayed suddenly and 
caught at his arm. Her face had 
gone pale, and her eyes appeared 
glazed. Vance turned quickly and, 
putting his arm about her. half led 
and half carried her to j large wick- 
er divan nearby. He made a beck- 
oning motion of his head to Miss 

"Look after her for a moment," 
he requested. "And keep her head 
down." Then he returned to Swift. 
"Every one please keep back," he 
ordered. "No one is to touch him." 
He took out his monacle and ad- 
justed it carefully. Then he leaned 
over the crumpled figure in the 
chair. He cautiously scrutinized the 
wound, the top of the head, and the 
tilted glasses. When this examina- 
tion was over he knelt down on 
the tiling and seemed to be search- 
ing for something. Apparently he 
did not find what he sought, for he 
stood up with a discouraged frown 
and faced the others. 

"Dead," he announced, in an un- 
wontedly sombre tone. "I'm taking 
charge of things temporarily." 

Zalia Graem hacfrisen from the 
divan, and the nurse was supporting 
her with a show of tenderness. 

"Please, Miss Beeton," he said, 
"take the young lady downstairs 
immediately." Then he added, "I'm 
sure she'll be all right in a few 

The nurse nodded, put her arm 
firmly about Miss Graem, and^led 
her into the passageway. 

Vance waited until the two young 
women were gone: then he turned 
to the others. "You will all be so 
good as to go downstairs and re- 
main there until further orders." 

"But what are you going to do, 
Mr. Vance?" asked Mrs. Garden in 
a frightened tone. "We must keep 
this thing as quiet as possible . . . 
My poor Woody!" 

— !i J4n- afraidr madam; we shall not" 
be able to keep it quiet at all." 
Vance spoke with earnest sig- 
nificance. "My first duty will be to 
telephone the district attorney and 
the homicide bureau." 
Mrs. Garden gasped. 
"The district attorney? The Hom- 
icide bureau?" she repeated dis- 
tractedly. "Oh, no! . . . Why must 
you do that? Surely, any one can 
see that the poor boy took his own 
Vance shook his head slowly. 
"I regret madam," he said, "that 
this is not a case of suicide . . 
It's murder!" 

Following Vance's unexpected an- 
nouncement there was a sudden si- 
lence. Every one moved reluctant- 
ly toward the door to the passage- 
way. Only Garden remained behind. 

I _ ., _ ' 

"Is U, re a telephone up here. ' 
Vance asked. 

"Yes, certainly," replied Garden, 
here's one in the study." 

Garden brushed past us with 
nervous energy, as if glad of the 
opportunity for action. He threw 
open the door at the end of the 
passageway and stood aside for us 
to enter the sturdy. 

"Over there," he said, pointing 
to the desk at the far end of the 
room, on which stood a hand tele- 
phone. "That's an open line. No 
connection with the one we use for 
the ponies, though it's an extension 
of the phone in the den." He stepped 
swiftly behind the desk and threw 
a black key on the switch box that 
was attached to the side of the desk. 
"By leaving the key in this position, 
you are disconnected from the ex- 
tension downstairs, so that you have 
complete privacy." 

"Oh, quite," Vance nodded with a 
faint smile. "I use the same sys- 
tem ift my-ewn apartment? Thanks 
awfully for your thoughtfulness . . . 
And now please join the others 
downstairs and try to keep things 
balanced for a little while— there's 
a good fellow." 

Garden took his dismissal with 
good grace and went toward the 

"Oh, by the way. Garden," Vance 
called after him, "111 want a little 
chat with you in private, before 

GWrden turned, $ troosiett look on 

his lace. 

"I suppose you'll be wanting me 
to rattle all the family skeletons for 
you? But that's all right. When 
you're ready for me you've only to 
press that buzzer on tht book- 
shelves there, just behind the desk.*" 
He indicated a white push-button 
set flush in the center of a small 
square japanned box on the upright 
between two sections of the book- 
shelves. "That's part of the inter- 
communicating system between this 
r"om and the den. I'll see that the 
den door is left open, so that I can 
hear the buzz wherever I am." 

Vance nodded curtly, and Garden, 
u.ter a momentary hesitation, 
turned and went from4he room. 

As soon as Garden could be heard 
making his way down the stairs, 
Vance closed the door and went im- 
mediately to the telephone. A mo. 
ment later he was speaking to Mark- 

"The galloping horses, old dear," 
he said. "The Trojans are riding 
roughshod. Equanimity was need- 
ed, but came in too far behind. Re- 
sult, a murder. Young Swift is 
dead. And it was as clever a per- 
formance as I've yet seen . . . No. 
Markham,"— his voice suddenly be- 
came grave— "I'm not spoofing. I 
think you'd better come immedi- 
ately. And notify Sergeant Heath, 
if you can reach him, and the medi- 
cal examiner." . ■ 

He replaced the receiver slowly. 

"This is a subtle crime, Van," he 
meditated. "Too subtle for my 
peace of mind. I don't like it— I 
don't at all like it. And I don't 
like this intrusion of horse-racing. 
Sheer expediency . . " 

He went thoughtfully to the north 
window and looked out on the gar- 
den. The rattan chair with its grue- 
some occupant . could not be seen 
from the study, as it was far to 
the left of the window, near the west 
balustrade. " 

"I wonder ..." 

He turned from the window 
abruptly and came back to the desk. 

"A few words with the colorless 
Garden are indicated, before the 
minions of the law arrive." 

He placed his finger on the white 
button in the buzzer box and de- 
pressed it for a second. Then he 
went to the door and opened it. 
Several moments went by, but Gar- 
den did not appear, and Vance again 
pressed the button. After a full 
minute or two had passed without 
any response to his summons, 
Vance started down the passage- 
way to the stairs, beckoning me to 

As he came to the vault door on 
the right, he halted abruptly. He 
scrutinized the heavy calamine 
door for a moment or two. «At 
first glance it seemed to be closed 
tightly, but as I looked at it more 
closely, I noticed that it was open 
a fraction of an inch, as if the spring 
catch, which locked it automatical- 
ly, had failed to snap when the door 
had last been shut. Vance pushed 
on the door gently with the tips of 
his fingers, and it swung inward 
slowly and ponderously. 

"Deuced queer," he commented. 
"A vault for preserving valuable 
documents — and the door unlocked. 
I wonder ..." 

"Rather Interesting, This Dis- 
array," He Observed. 

•ithough there was ample room 
.or us both inside the vault. I re- 
mained in the hallway, watching 
Vance as he looked about him. 

Vance leaned over and picked up 
a batch of scattered typewritten pa- 
pers which had evidently been 
brushed down from one of the 
shelves directly opposite the door. 
He glanced at them for a moment 
and carefully replaced lliem in the 
empty space on the shelf, 

"Rather interestin', this dis- 
array - ," he observed. 

"The professor was obviously not 
the last person in here, or he w uld 
certainly not have left his popirs on 
the floor . . ."He wheeled about. 
"My word!" he .exclaimed in a low 
tone. "These fallen papers and that 
unlatched door . . . It could be, 
don't y* know." There was a sup- 
pressed excitement in his manner. 
"I say. Van, don't come in here; 
and, above all, don't touch this door- 

He knelt down on the tiled floor 
and began a dose inspection of the 
small squares, as if he were count- 
ing them. His action reminded me 
of the way he had inspected the til- 
ing on the roof near the chair in 
which we had found young Swift. 
It occurred to me that he was seek- 
ing here what he had failed to find 
in the garden. 

"It should be here," he mur- 
mured. "It would explain many 
things— it would form the first vague 
outline of a workable pattern ..." 
After searching. about for a min- 
ute or two, he stopped abruptly and 
leaned forward eagerly. Then he 
took a small piece of paper from 
his pocket and adroitly flicked some- 
thing onto it from the floor. Fold- 
ing the paper carefully, he tucked 
it away in his waistcoat pocket. Al- 
though I was only a few feet from 


The 'irrhts from the hall shone into 
the dark recess of the vault, and 
as Vance pushed the door further 
inward a white cord hanging from 
a ceiling light became visible. To 
the end of this cord was attached a 
miniature brass pestle which acted 
as a weight. Vance stepped imme- 
diately inside and jerked the cord, 
and the vault was flooded with light. 
"Vault" hardly describes this 
small storeroom, except that the 
walls were unusually thick, and it 
had obviously been constructed to 
serve as a burglar-proof repository. 
The room was about five by seven 
feet, and the ceiling was as high 
as that of the hallway. The walls 

him and was looking directly at 
him, I could not see what it was 
that he had found. 

"I think that will be all for the 
moment," he said, rising and pull- 
ing the cord to extinguish the light. 
Coming out into the hallway, he 
closed the vault door by carefully 
grasping the shank of the knob. 
Then he moved swiftly down the 
passageway, stepped through the 
door to the garden, and went direct- 
ly to the dead man. Though his 
back was turned to me as he bent 
over the figure, I could see that he 
took the folded paper from his 
waistcoat pocket and opened it. He 
glanced repeatedly from the paper 
in his hand to the limp figure in , 
the chair. At length he nodded his 
head emphatically, and rejoined me 
in the hallway. We descended the 
stairs to the apartment below. 

Just as we reached the lower 
hall, the front door opened and 
Cecil Kroon entered. He seemed 
surprised to find us in the hall, 
and asked somewhat vaguely, as 
he threw his hat on a bench: 
"Anything the matter?" 
Vance studied him sharply and 
made no answer; and Kroon went 

"I suppose the big race is over, 
damn it! Who won it— Equanimity?" 
Vance shook his head slowly, his 
eyes fixed on the other. 

"Azure Star won the race. I be- 
lieve Equanimity came in fifth or 

"And did Woody go in on him up 
to the hilt, as he threatened?" 

Vance nodded. "I'm afraid he 

"Good Gad!" Kroon caught his 
breath. "That's a blow for the 
chap. How's he taking it?" He 
looked away from Vance as if he 
would rather not hear the answer. 

"He's not taking it," Vance re- 
turned quietly. "He's dead." ;• - 

"No!" Kroon sucked in his breath 
with a whistling sou-id, and his-eyes 
slowly contracted. "So he shot him- 
self, did he?" 

Vance's eyebrows went up slight-

were lined with deep shelves from 
floor to ceiling, and these were piled 
with all manner of papers, docu- 
ments, pamphlets, filing cases, and 
racks of test-tubes and vials labeled 
with mysterious symbols. Three of 
the shelves were devoted to a ae- 
ries of sturdy steel cash and security 
boxes. The floor was overlaid with 
small squares of black and white

By Robert R. Rose 

Farewell, old year, farewell to thee! 

We grieve to see you go; 
Yet have we learned much truth 


And mercy more to show. 
Now may the God who rules 

the throngs 

In love and mercy kind/, 
Forgive us all our sins, our wrongs 

And calm our troubled minds. 
All hail, new year, all hail to thee! 

We bid you welcome glad, 
With every opportunity, 

With fortune good or bad. 
So if distress shall some our way 

As we do travel on, 
Then let our faith with firmness say 

"Thy grace, O Lord, is strong." 
But if good fortune smiles on us 

And everything seems fine; 
Then may we not forget to trust 

In God with thanks sublime. 
Now may He overlook our faults 

And from them set us free; 
And guide us, too, in all our walks 

That we may like Him be. 
May service be our highest aim, 

For others near and far, 
That we may help them grace to 


And kindness never mar. 
And when the new year shall 

have gone 

Into eternity, 
Then may we sing with cheerful song 

The praise of victory.

Did something stir your hearts in 
love, sympathy or thankfulness, or 
was it all business of a high pres- 
sure type, confined to the strick let- 
ter of a contract? 

If all a man receives for his labor 
is the sum of money that can bo 
tucked into a pay envelope, there 
would be little of happiness in thif 
world, or the world to come. 

Get the sentiment of the poor 
Chinaman, "lovee gone!" Richer 
did not enter his mind but the sen- 
timent of love. "Riches, the root of 
all evil," doesn't get us by. 1936 
"gone," was it empty of love divine? 

Many points I have mentioned 
have been exemplified during the 
month just passed, as we celebrated 
Christmas, the birth of Christ. It 
has pointed us back to Bethlehem

sage of the angels, the shepherd*

Subscription Accounts 
Sent Out This Week 

We are sending out a number of 
accounts this week to subscribers 
who are in arrears. We have not 
sent out these accounts for some 
time owing to the fact that financial 
matters were close with everybody. 
During the three years of depression 
we not only did not make money, but 
we ment into the "red" in conse- 
quence. Now that a great number 
of our subscribers are farmers and 
tobacco griwers, and as tobacco is 
top high this season all growers have 
been benefitted by the good prices 
paid for tobacco. 

The amount asked is small and an 
aggregate these small accounts mean 
big amounts to us, so we kindly ask 
all who know themselves indebted 
to us to please pay up. 

We have tried to make the Adver- 
tiser worth the money asked "for it 
and are asking for only what is 
justly due us. 

Very respectfully, .

and Pub.

Jas. A. Farley, claimed a net sur- 
plus of $4,964,149, but only last week 
he says the department is $88,316,324 
in the red, or a deficit of that a- 
mount. However, he stated last 
week, according to report, that free 
mail for Congressmen and other 
"non-postal items" largely were re-

Parley, however, reported that the 
"net deficit"— that incurred in the 
normal postal service rendered tc 
the public for hire" was only $16,- 
000,000. Quite a number of added 
expenses connected with the dis- 
tribution and handling of mails have 

augmented the enormous expense.

The marriage took place at Mays-

C. Banks, pastor of the Maysville 
Christian church, tieing the nuptial 
knot. The immediate families of 
the bride and groom were aware of 
the event and there was no especial 
reason why their marriage should be 
kept a secret — just a whim. 

Mrs. Bedinger is one of Walton's 
handsome and lovable young ladies 
of a very friendly, sunny disposition 
that makes for her a host of friends. 
She is one of the valued members of 
the Walton Christian church and is 
active in its religious work. 

Mr. Bedinger is a splendid young 
man of sterling qualities, who by 
his pleasant, genial manner has 
many friends in and around Walton 
He is a locomotive engineer in the 
employ of the Big Four Railroad, of 
the New York Central group, in the 
Indiana Division of their corpora- 
tions. He has been in the employ of 
this company for a number of 
years, starting in as fireman and af- 
terwards advanced to an engineer 
He is a valued member of the Wal- 
ton Methodist church and Masonx 
Lodge, and a brother of Dr. F. E. 
Bedinger of Walton, one of this sec- 
tions leading physicians. 

The many friends of this couple 
extend to them their most sincere 
wishes for a long life of happiness 
and prosperity.

their efforts to reduce the Federal 
tax on manufactured tobacco. 

Reduction of these taxes, it was 
said by Garth K. Ferguson, State 
Commissioner of Agriculture, Labor 
and Statistics, would "widen the 
markin which the manufacturer has 
available for the payment of the 
cost of purchasing raw tobacco from 
the farmer, and for labor." 

The current high prices for to- 
bacco on Kentucky markets, Fergu- 
son said, are due in part to a "dis- 
tribution of surplus earnings by 
manufacturers, for the purpose of 
avoiding the new Federal taxes on 
undistributed surpluses." 

In letters to Kentucky represent- 
atives in Congress, Ferguson pointed 
out that "tobacco companies accum- 
ulated large stocks of tobacco at low 
prices in previous years." He ex- 
pressed belief that with tobacco 
prices now at a much higher figure 
the companies would not have such 
large surpluses in future years. 

"Hence, it is probable that tins 
factor will not have so much effect 
on prices paid for tobacco in future 
years," he said. 

Urging the Kentucky delegation in 
Congress to continue the fight for 
lower taxes on tobacco, Ferguson 
said that "if it resulted in increased 
earnings for the manufacturer, the 
farmer would still be benefitted so 
long as the Federal tax on excess 
earnings compelled the companies to 
distribute these earnings back to the 
farmers by paying higher prices for 

Ferguson said he already had re- 
ceived encouraging replies from sev- 
eral of the Kentucky Congressmen 
in response to his letter. He credit- 
ed the Congressmen with (having led 
the fight for tobacco-tax-reduction 
in other sessions, saying he wrote 
them "not in the sense of urging, 
but rather of supporting you in all 
you can do for Kentucky farmers."

The jury in the James Gillespie trial 
for the murder of his sister, Miss 
Elizabeth Gillespie, at Rising Sun 
Ind., Dec. 8, 1903, Thursday night re- 
turned a verdict of guilty and fixed 
his sentence at life imprisonment 
*t 1 The case has been stubbornly fought 
by t he defense and an immense a- 
mount of money expended, by his 
relatives. Miss Gillespie's head was 
almost blown off on the night men- 
tioned, by an assasin firing a shot 
gun at her through the parlor win- 
dow as she was arranging the room 
preparatory to entertaining a literary- 
club of which she was a member. Al- 
though mortally wounded she linger- 
ed for a number of hours. Suspicion 
pointed toward John Gillespie, ow- 
ing to the known hatred he bore hi? 
twin sister. The first trial the jury- 
disagreed and it was whispered they 
were tampered with. Gillespie's at- 
torneys have filed a motion for a 
new trial. His sister Brs. Belle Sew-

Mr. "George Powers, 
Walton, Ky. 
My dear Mr. Powers: 

I have been reading your articles 
in the Walton Advertiser and have 
enjoyed them very much. As you 
are interested in historical things 
I thought probably you might be 
able to help me find out about a 
couple of Gallatin County families. 

Whitfield Hawkins married Cath- 
erine Peak in Warsaw, Ky„ 1837. I 
have the marriage record. Catherine 
| Peak was \he daughter of Willis 
Peak and ' Prances Price. Willis 
Peak died 1864 in Warsaw. I have 
the date of his birth and the birth 
of his wife but not their marriage 

I would like to find out the name 
of the parents of Whitfield Hawkins 
also the parents of Willis Peak and 
his wife Frances Price. I have sent 
to the court house at Warsaw, but 
they say they have nothing about 

I thought probably you might 
know some old citizen that couid 
tell you about them or some old 
grave yard that might give some 
dates. The editor of your paper 
told me he knew an old man that 
knew all about the family and that 
he would go to see him hight away 
but he never did. If there are any 
charges for your help please let me 
know and if you find what I want 

under indictment as accessories and 
will be tried latter. 

The editor was personally ac- 
quainted with Miss Gillespie and 
greatly admired her for her genial 
personality. She was a large, hand- 
some woman in her later twenties 
and had a large number of admir- 
ing friends. She was a leader in 
church and social work. 

It is alleged her brother was in- 
senseci because his mother had will- 
ed all her property to Miss Elizabeth 
when she departed this life. 

Gillespie had powerful, influental 
friends, a flaw was found by a law- 
yer and he was released after about 
two years in Michigan City Peniten-

I poisonous to eat. 

We have too many mixtures in 
our diets. A sliced ripe tomato 
served fresh and natural is a thing 
of beauty and a joy forever, but 
when we put it into all sorts of mix- 
tures they become a mess. A few 
such dishes once in a great while 
might be really enjoyed, but served 
too often we lose all respect for the 
delightful vegetable. 

Recently on the bill of fare in a 
famous restaurant we ordered 
"Old-fashioned Beef Stew." There 
were visions of brown juicy meat 
with the accompanying brown gra- 
vy, but when it appeared there were 
large cubes of beef floating in rivers 
of tomato sauce; Imagine a stew 
called old-fashioned, served thus. 

When we disguise the dish we 
are serving by any sauce too highly 
seasoned or flavored, we are guilty 
of a grave dietary error. When we 
eat potatoes, we want to have them 
taste like potatoes; meats should 
always have their own distinctive 
flavor paramount, and so should it 
be in all main dishes. '

Washington has few buildings 
more than a century old for it is 
but an infant as far as ages oi cities 
go. Conococheague, as the Indians 
called it, was selected in 1791 by 
Congress as the site for the capital 
city of the newly organized repub- 
lic but was not taken over in earnest 
until 10 years later. Much of the 
area occupied by stately govern- 
ment buildings and parks was under 
water and had to be drained and 
filled In. Georgetown, now a part 
of the city, had been settled about 
100 years previously although it was 
not laid out as a town until about

Last week I told you about a good 
man, now living in Walton, and if 
you have guessed who he is. I am 
sure you will agree with me. There 
are, and has been, many goad and 
influential men who have been in- 
strumental in the upbuilding and 
progress of our little village. 

I reeall one who has passed to the 
Great Beyond— a man small in 
statue, kind of heart, always guard- 
ing his actions and speech — truly a 
man "with a heart of gold." I do 
not think he ever wavered on a de- 
cision for "right" no matter what 
the situation might have been. 

This man's family was composed 
of two daughters and two sons — one 
daughter who lives in Walton, near 
a filling station, the other, her sis- 
ter, who has gone to meet father 
and mother, will be remembered by 
her beautiful life, her patience and 
suffering. The two boys have gone 
to other states, and I am told, are 
both making good. When they were 
at home, they loved to come to the 
writer's home, sometimes I knew it 
and sometimes I didn't, because 
they were among the bunch who 
thought my strawberries, apples and 
watermelons, tasted so much better 
at night. They had a chum who 
was known as "Bum" and he had 
chums and of course you know "boys 
will toe boys," and the writer hasn't 
anything but good thoughts and best 
wishes for them all, and glad to 
know they all married fine girls and 
are all "real" men now. 

There is another, an older one. 
now in this family who did not

Break 8 Year Record 

Twenty Shelby-Boone-Oarroll co- 
unty dairymen in the Northern Ken- 
tucky Dairy Herd Improvement As- 
sociation broke the eight year record 
for butter fat production during the 
1935-36 year, Just completed, with 
an average of 345 pounds of butter- 
fat per cow on a total of 655 cows 
according to John V. Hood, tester 
for the association. This exceeds 
by 10 pounds the previous 1934-35 
year record of 335 pounds. 

The association, under the work 
of John Hood, tests has shown a 
steady progress. The average pro- 
duction per cow in 1928-29 testing 
year was 5947 pounds of milk and 
255 pounds of butter fat. This pro- 
duction has increased steadily until 
the production for the past 1935-36 
year of 7371 pounds of milk and 
345 pounds of fat was produced 
This growth demonstrates the im- 
portance of continuous dairy herd 
improvement association work. The 
Dairy Herd Improvement Associa- 
tion plan is based on the tester 
spending one day each month with 
the »dairyman, testing and keeping 
j complete detailed production and 
cost of production records on each I 
j individual cow in the herd. The j 
dairyman in turn pays $4.00 per 
month for this complete service. The 
work of the association is supervised 
by the dairy department of the Col- 
lege of Agriculture.

It should be noted costs do not in- 
volve depreciation^ overhead other 
than feed, taxes, interest and other 
costs involved in production. The 
production per cow is also more than

lington, and Ben Nichting, Beaver. 
Farmers Plan Community Program 
Boone county farmers cooperating 
in the County Extension Agricultural 
Improvement Program will meet in 
their respective communities this 
week and next to plan the improve- 
ment program to be carried out in 
their communities during 1937. 

The community improvement pro- 
grams are chiefly of an educational 
nature. Interested farmers meet to- 
gether to discuss the agricultural 
progress made in the community 
during the past year and to outline 
these lines of improvement which in 
their opinion should be carried out 
in 1937. 

Much progress in livestock and 
poultry improvement, new and im- 
proved varieties of crops, field meet- 
ings, community organization and 
other lines of improvement has been 
made through this work in the past 
Farmers have shown a splendid 
spirit of cooperation. It is hoped 
that the 1937 programs will be the 
niost constructive planned to date 
The community programs will be or- 
ganized into a county program of 
work following these meetings.

Camphor Found in Tree 

Sometimes camphor is found dis- 
tributed through the grain of the 
tree in small white sugar - like 
crystals, when the method of col- 
lection is to fell the tree, split the 
wood up into splinters and scrap* 
off the crystals; at other times th« 
camphor occurs occupying a single 
cell like a kidney, abou« the size 
of r man's forearm

This man spent his younger days 
plying the "Beautiful Ohio," be-

and was known as the "Beau Brum-

"penchant" for building aircastles 
and blowing bubbles. He "blew

a wonderful "aircastle" come true 
in a little domicile near a local fill-

I remember the good old father 
as he spoke of this "Beau Brummel" 
to whom he had committed his only 
daughter, and spoke of the peace he 
felt in his heart, to know that her 
future was happily cared for, know- 
ing that the time was drawing near, 
when he must leave her.

Beginning February 1st, the Fed- 
eral Land Bank plans to have au 
payments by borrowers paid direct 
to the local Association instead jf 
being sent to Louisville, as has been 
the custom in the past. This will 
place considerable extra work on the 
officials of the Association. 

Last year the association enter- 
tained about 125, including borrow- 
ers and visitors and a much larger 
attendance is expected this year. 

The present Directors are E. A 
Martin, John H. Grimes, B. E. Ay- 
j lor, Karl Rouse and Thos. Hensley 
who have attended every meeting 
but one during the past year; two 
directors were prevented from at- 
tending this one Directors' meeting 
on account of the weather. 

The meeting on the 19th will 
probably be the largest meeting of 
representative farmers from eve:y 
section of the county ever held at 
the County Seat.

CHAPTER I— Phllo Vance, famous de- 
tective and John F. X. Markham, dis- 
trict attorney for New York county are 
dining in Vance's apartment when 
Vance receives an anonymous telephone 
message informing him of a "disturbing 
psychological tcnsiun at Professor Ephri- 
am Garden's apartment" advising that 
ne read up on radio active sodium, con- 
suit a passage in the Aeneid and coun- 
seling that "Equanimity is essential." 
f rofessor Garden is famous in chemical 
research. The message, decoded by 
Vance, reminds him that Professor Gar- 
den s son Floyd and his puny cousin. 
Woode Swift, are addicted to horse-rac- 
Mg. Vance says that "Equanimity" is 
a horse running next day in the Kiver- 
mont handicap. Vance is convinced that 
the message was sent by Dr. Siefert. 
the Garden s family physician. He ar- 
ranges to have lunch next day at the 
uaidens penthouse. 

Fin£. A £ XE „ R "-Vance Is greeted by 
*Ioyd Garden and meets Lowe Hammle

Floyd expresses concern over Swift's 
queer actions. Gathered around an elab- 
orate loud speaker service, listening to 
the racing are Cecil Kroon. Madge 
Weatherby and Zalia Graem, who bet 
varying amounts on the race. There is 
tension under the surface gaiety. Zalia 
arid Swift are not on speaking terms 
Mrs. Garden, supposedly ill. comes 
downstairs and places a $100 bet on a 

tin™ PTE :. R r "'—Swift, recklessly bets 
510.000 on Equanimity" and goes to the 
roof garden to hear the results. Floyd 
follows Swift, remaining away several 
minutes. Kroon leaves to keep an ap- 
pointment before the race starts. Zalia 
answers a phone call in the den. Miss 
Beeton, a nurse, and Vance bet on 
Azure Star." Soon after the announce- 
ment that "Azure Star" wins, the guests 
hear a shot. Vance finds Swift dead, 
shot through the head with a revolver 
nearby. He says Swift has been mur- 
dered. After calling the police, he finds 
the door of a vault ajar. 

CHAPTER IV.-Kroon returns and Is 
sharply questioned by Vance, who finds 
he had not left the building. Vance or- 
ders Miss Beelon to guard the stairway 
and prevent Mrs. Garden and Zalia 
from viewing Swift's body. Floyd Gar- 
den admits the revolver belongs to his 

mediately to the front door, opened 
it quietly and, walking down the 
| narrow public corridor, pressed the 
elevator button. A few moments 
later the sliding door opened and a 
dark, thin, intelligent-looking boy of 
perhaps twenty-two, in a light-blue 
uniform, looked out enquiringly. 

"Going down?" he said respect- 

"I'm not going down," Vance re- 
plied. "I merely wanted to ask you 
a question or two. I'm more or 

"That's the general impression," 
he returned blandly. "You're not 
psychic— are you? I didn't mention 
how Swift died, but the fact is, he 
did die by a revolver shot. Super- 
ficially, I admit, it looks like sui- 
cide." Vance smiled coldly. "Your 
reaction is most inferestin'. Why, 
for instance did you assume that 
he shot himself, instead of— let us 
say— jumping off the roof?" 

Kroon set his mouth in a straight 
line, and a look of anger came into 
his narrowed eyes. He fumbled in 
his pocket for a cigarette, and fi- 
nally stammered: 

"I don't know — exactly . . . ex- 
cept that— most people shoot them- 
selves nowadays." 

"Oh, quite." Vance's lips were 
still set in a stern smile. "Not an 
uncommon Way of assisting oneself 
out of this troublous world. But, 
really y'know, I didn't mention sui- 
cide at all. Why do you take it for 
granted that his death was self- 

Kroon became aggressive. "He 
was healthy enough when I left 
here. No one's going to blow a 
man's brains out in public like this." 
"Blow his brains out?" Vance re- 
peated. "How do you know he 
wasn't shot through the heart? 

less connected with the -district at- 
torney's office." 

"I know you, Mr. Vance." The 
boy nodded alertly. 

"A little matter has come up this 

afternoon," Vance said, "and I think 

you may be able to help me . . ." 

"I'll tell you anything I know," 

agreed the boy. 

"Excellent! Do you know a Mr. 
Kroon who visits the Garden apart- 
ment?— The gentleman is blond and 
has a mustache." 

"Sure, I know him," the boy re- 
turned promptly. "He comes up 
here nearly every afternoon. I 
brought him up today." 
"About what time was that?" 
"Two or three o'clock, I guess." 
The boy frowned. "Isn't he in 
there?" ( 

Vance answered the question by 
asking another. 

"Have you been on the car 

"Sure I have— since noon. I don't 
get relieved till seven o'clock." 

"And you haven't seen Mr. Kroon 
since you brought him up here early 
this afternoon'.'" 

The boy shook his head 
sir; I haven't." 

"Many thanks," he said, 
all I wanted to know." 

The boy pocketed the money and 
released the door as we turned 
back to the apartment. 

When we re-entered the front hall, 
the nurse was standing in the door- 
way of the bedroom at the right of 
the entrance. There was a worried, 
inquisitive look in her eyes. 

Vance closed the door softly and 
was about, to start up the hall, but 


"I can vouch for that," put in 
Miss Graem. 

"I'm dashed grateful for the cor- 
roboration," Vance murmured. 

"Are you sure you pressed the 
button?" Garden asked Vance. "It's 
damned funny. That system hasn't 
failed in six years. Wait a minute 

Going to the door he called Sneed. 

"Go upstairs to the study, Sneed," 
Garden ordered, "and push the 
buzzer button." 

"The buzzer is out of order, sir," 
the butler told him imperturbably. 
"I've already notified the telephone 

"When did you know about it?" 
Garden demanded angrily. 

The nurse, who had heard the con- 
versation, left her chair and came 
to the doorway. 

"I discovered this afternoon that 
the buzzer wasn't working," she 
explained; "so I told Sneed about it 
and suggested that he notify the 
telephone company." 

"Oh, I see. Thank you, Miss Bee- 
ton." Garden turned back to Vance. 
"Shall we go upstairs now?" ■ 

Miss Graem, who had been look- 
ing on with a cynical and somewhat 
amused expression, started from 
the room. 

"Why go upstairs?" she asked. 
"I'll fade into the drawing room. 



and you enn talk to your heart's 
content right here." 

Vance studied the girl for a few 
•econds. and then bowed slightly. 
"Thank you." he said. "That will 
be much better." He stood aside 
as she stolled leisurely into the hall 
and closed the door after her. 

Vance dropped his cigarette into 

a small ash tray on the tabouret 

j before the davenport and, moving 

' swiftly to the door, reopened it. 

From where I stood in the den. I 

j could see that Miss Graem, instead 

of going toward the drawing room, 

was walking rapidly in tiie opposite 


"Just a moment. Miss Graem!" 
Vance's voice was peremptory. 
"Please wait in the drawing-room. 
No one is to go upstairs just now." 
She swung about. "And why not?" 
Her face was flushed with anger, 
and her jaw protruded with defi- 
ance. "I have a right to go up," 
she proclaimed spiritedly. 

Vance said nothing but shook his 
head in negation, his eyes holding 

She returned his !ook, but could 
not resist the power of his scrutiny. 
Slowly she came back toward him. 
A sudden change seemed to have 
come over her. Her eyes dimmed, 
and tears sprang into them. 

"But you don't understand," she 
protested, in a broken voice. "I'm 
to blame for this tragedy— it wasn't 
the race. If it hadn't been for me 
Woody would be alive now. I — I 
feel terrible about it. And I wanted 
to go upstairs— to see him." 

Vance put his hand on the girl's 

shrugged her shoulders, and, turn- 
ing indifferently, went back up the 

"Frightfully sorry, Vance," apol- 
ogized Garden. 

"The mater is a dowager. Not ac- 
customed to taking orders. And she 
resents it. She'd probably have 
spent the day in bed, if Doc Siefert 
hadn't firmly told her not to get up." 
"That's quite all right." Vance 
spoke indifferently. Then he came 
quickly to the den door. "Let's 
have our little chat— eh, what?" He 
stood aside for Garden to enter the 
room, then he followed and closed 
the door. 

"Garden," he began, "there are 
a few things that I'd like to have 
cleared up before the district at- 
torney and the police arrive." He 
turned about leisurely and sat down 
at the desk, facing Garden. 

"Anything I can do to help," Gar- 
den mumbled, lighting his pipe. 

"A few necess'ry questions, don't 
y' know," Vance went on. "Hope 
they won't upset you. and all that 
But the fact is. Mr. Markham will 
probably want me to take a hand

witness 'to the preamble of this dis- 
tressin' tragedy." 

"I hope he does," Garden re- 
turned. "It's a damnable affair 
and I'd like to see the axe fall, no

"You look troubled, Miss Beeton," I 
he said kindly. "But, after all, you ' 
should be accustomed to death." ! 

"I am accustomed to it," she an- ' 
swered in a low voice. "But this is 
so different. It came so suddenly 
—without any warning . . . Al- I 
though," she added, "Mr. Swift al- 
ways impressed me as more or 
less the suicidal type." 

Vance looked at the nurse ap- 
praisingly. "Your impression may 
have been correct," he said. "But 
it happens that Swift did not com- 
mit suicide." 

The nurse's eyes opened wide. Her 
face paled perceptibly. 

"You mean someone shot him?" 
Her words were barely audible. 
"But who — who ?" 

"We don't know." Vance's voice

Zalia Graem looked up at Vance

"Quite true," said Vance.

her lips trembled. She took a quick

Would you like 

"I— I merely assumed—" 
Vance interrupted the man's em- 

"However," he said, without re- 
laxing his calculating scrutiny, 
"your academic conclusions regard- 
ing a more or less public murder 
are not without some logic. But 
the fact remains, some one did actu- 
ally shoot Swift through the head— 
and practically in public. I could 
bear to know just where you've been 
and just when you returned to the. 
apartment house here." % 

Kroon' s gaze wandered. 
"I believe I remarked before I 
went out," he said, with an attempt 
at serenity, "that I was going to a 
relative's to sign some silly legal 
documents — " 

"And may I have the name and 
address of your relative— an aunt, 
I believe you said?" Vance re- 
quested pleasantly. "I'm in charge 
of the situation here until the offi- 
cials arrive." 

Kroon took the cigarette from his 
mouth with a forced air of non- 
chalance and drew himself up 
haughtily. • 

"I cannot see," he replied stifl- 
. ly, "that that information concerns 
any one but myself." 

"Neither can I," admitted Vance 
cheerfully. "I was merely hopin' 
for frankness. But I can assure 
you, in view of what has happened 
here this afternoon, that the police 
will want to know exactly when you 
returned from your mysterious sign- 
ing of documents. And now I must 
ask you to join the others in the 
drawing-room, and to wait there un- 
til the police arrive. I trust you 
have no objections." 

"None whatever, I assure you," 
Kroon returned with a display of 
cynical amusement. "The regular- 
police will be a relief, after this 
amateur hocuspocus." 

When Kroon bad disappeared into 
the drawing room, Vance Went irn-

to help me, Miss Beeton?"' 

She drew herself up; her fea- ' 
tures relaxed; and she was once ! 
more the unperturbed and efficient 
"I'd be very glad to." 
"Then I would like you to stand 
guard, as it were," he said, with a 
faint friendly smile. "I want to 
talk to Mr. Garden, and I don't 
want anyone to go upstairs. Would 
you mind taking your post in this 
chair and notifying me immediately 
if anyone should attempt to go up?" 
"That's so little to ask," the girl 
replied, as she seated herself in a 
chair at the foot of the stairs. 

Vance thanked her and proceeded 
to the den. Inside Garden and Zalia 
Graem were sitting close together 
on a tapestry davenport and talking 
in low, confidential tones. An in- 
distinct murmur of voices from be- 
yond the archway indicated that the | 
other members of the group were in 
the drawing-room. . 

"I've called the district attorney, 
and he has notified the police. They I 
should be here any minute now. In J 
the meantime, I'd like to see you I 
alone." He turned his head-to Miss ; 
Graem and added: "I hope you 
won't mind. 

matter whom it might behead." His 
pipe was giving him trouble. "By 
the way, Vance." he went on quiet- 
ly, "how did you happen to come 
here today? I've asked you so often 
to join our racing seance— and you 
pick the one day when the roof 
blows off the place." 

Vance kept his eyes on Garden 
for a moment. 

m "The fact is," he said at length, 
"I got an anonymous telephone mes- 
sage last night, vaguely outlining 
the situation here and mentioning 

Garden jerked himself up to keen- 
er attention. 

"The devil you say!" he ex- 
claimed. "That's a queer one. Man 
or woman?" 

"Oh, it was a man," Vance re- 
plied casually. 

Garden pursed his lips and, after 
a moment's meditation, said quiet- 

"Well, anyway. I'm damned glad 
you did come . . . What can I tell 
you that might be of help? Any- 
thing you want, old man." 

"First of all, then," asked Vance, 
"did you recognize the revolver? I 
saw you looking at it rather appre- 
hensively when we came out on the 
roof." ( 

Garden frowned, and finally an- 
swered, as if with sudden resolu- 

"Yes! I did recognize it, Vancej 
It bt.ongs to the old gentleman—" 
"Your father?" 

Garden nodded grimly. "He's had 
it for years. Why he ever got it in 
the first place, I don't know— he 
probably, hasn't the slightest idea 
how to use it . . ." 

"By the by." Vance put in, "what 
time does your father generally re- 
turn home from the university?" 

"Why— why— " Garden hesitated 
and then continued: "on Saturdays 
he's always here early in the after- 
noon—rarely after three. Gives 
himself and his staff a half-holiday 
. . . But," he added, "father's 
very erratic . . ." His voice trailed 
off nervously. 

Vance took two deep inhalations 
on his cigarette: he was watching 
Garden attentively. Then he asked 
in a soft tone: 

"What's on your mind?— Unless, 
of course, you have good reason for 
not wanting to tell me." 

Garden took a long breath and 
stood up. He seemed to be deeply 
troubled as he walked across the 
room and back. 

"The truth is, Vance," he said, 
as he resumed his place on the davl 
enport, "I don't even know where 
the pater is this afternoon. As soon 
as I came downstairs after Woody's 
death, I called him to give him the 
news. I thought he'd want to get 
here as soon as possible in the cir- 
cumstances. But I was told that 
he'd locked up the laboratory and 
left the university about two

"What day was that?" Vance cut 
in sharply. 

"It was about three months ago," 
Garden explained. "You see. we 
used to have the telephone set-up 
connected upstairs in the study. But 
some of the western races came in 
so late that it began to interfere 
with the old gentleman's routine 
when he came home from the uni- 
versity. So we moved the parapher- 
nalia down into the drawing room. 
As a matter of fact, it was more 
convenient; and the mater didn't 
object— in fact, she rather enjoyed 

"But what happened on this par 
ticular day?" insisted Vance. 

"Well, we were all upstairs in the 
study, going through the whole silly 
racing rigmarole that you witnessed 
.this afternoon, when Zalia Graem, 
who always sat at the old* gentle- 
man's desk, began opening the 
drawers, looking for a piece of 
scratch paper on which to figure 
the mutual*. She finally opened the 
center drawer and saw the revolv- 
er. She bruught it out with a flour- 
ish and, laughing like a silly school- 
girl, pointed it around the room. 
1 reprimanded her— rather rudely, 
I'm afraid— and ordered her to put 

the revolver back in its place, as 
it was loaded— and just then a race 
came over the amplifier, and the 
episode was ended." 

"Most rnterestin'." murmured 
Vance. "And can you recall how 
many of those present today were 
likewise present at Miss Graem's 
little entr'acte?" 

"I rather think they were all 
there, if my memory is correct." 
Vance sighed. 

"A bit futile— eh, what? No pos- 
sible elimination along that line." 
Garden looked up, startled. 
"Elimination? I don't understand. 
We were all downstairs here this 
afternoon except Kroon — and he 
was out— when the shot was fired." 
At this moment there was a slight 
commotion in the hallway. It sound- 
ed as if a sciiille of some kind was 
in process, and a shrill, protesting 
voice mingled with the calm but 
determined tones of the nurse. 
Vance went immediately to the door 
and threw it open. There, just out- 
side the den door, only a short dis- 
tance from the stairway, were Miss 
Weatherby and Miss Beeton. The 
nurse had a firm hold on the other 
woman and was calmly arguing 
with her. As Vance stepped toward 
them. Miss Weatherby turned to 
face him and drew herself up arro- 
gantly. . 

"What's the meaning of this?" 
she demanded. "Must I be mauled 
by a menial because I wish to go 

"Miss Beeton has orders that no 
one is to go upstairs," Vance said , 
sternly. "And I was unaware that ' 
she* is a menial." [ 

"But why can't I go upstairs?" . 
the woman asked with dramatic em- 1 
phasis. "I want to see poor Woody. 
Death is so beautiful; and I was 
very fond of Woody. By whose 
orders, pray, am I being denied

Garden grinned. 

"Well, there you arc." The n h e 
remarked judicially: "Cut you can 
never tell about women." 

"I wonder." Vance smoked in si- 
lence for a moment. Then he went 
on: "There's another matter in con- 
nection with Swift which you might 
be able to clear up for me. Could 
you suggest any reason why. when 
I placed the bet on Azure Star for 
Miss Beeton this afternoon. Swift 
should have looked at me as if he 
would enjoy murdering me?" 
^ "I saw that too," Garden nodded 
"I can't say it meant anything 
much. Woody was always a weak 
sister where any woman was con- 
cerned. It took" little to make him 
think he'd fallen in love. He may

will be permitted to disturb any-

Admonished Her Sternly.

resting her head against his arm, 
burst into tears. 

Vance placed his hands on her 
arms and held her away from him. 
"I say, stop this nonsense," he 
I admonished her sternly. "And don't

said angrily, "that you forbade her 

"Pray, don't consider hie," she 
replied. "You may be as mysteri- 
ous as you wish." 

Garden rebuked her peevishly. 

"Never mind the hauteur, Zalia." 
Then he turned to Vance. "Why 
didn't you ring the buzzer for me? 
I would have come up. I purposed- 
ly stayed here in the den because I 
thought you might be wanting me." 

"I did ring, don't y' know," .Vance 
told him. 

"Twice, in fact. But as you didn't 
come up, I came down." 

"There was no signal here," Gar- 
den assured him. "And I've been 
right here ever since I came down- 

to go upstairs. It's an outrage! But 
surely I may go up. This is my 
| house, remember. You have no 
right whatever to prevent me from 
spending these last minutes with 
my nephew." 

Vance turned to confront her. 
There was a pained look on his 
face, but his eyes were cold and 

"I have every right, madam," he 
said. "The situation is a most seri- 
ous one, and if you will not accept 
that fact, it will be necess'ry for 
me to assume sufficient authority to 
compel you to do so." 

The woman raised her eyebrows. 


I could not understand the man's 
perturbation; and I could see that it 
puzzled Vance as well. Vance en- 
deavored to put him at his ease. 

"It really doesn't matter," he 
said, as if dismissing the subject. 
"It may be just as well that your 
father doesn't learn of the tragedy 
till later." He smoked for a moment. 
"But to get back to the revolver: 
where was it usually kept?" 

"In the center drawer of. the desk 
upstairs," Garden told him prompt- 

"And was the fact generally 
known to the other members of the 
household, or to Swift himself?" 

Garden nodded. "Oh, yes. There 
was no secret about it. We often 
Joked with the old gentleman about 
his 'arsenal.' " 

"And the revolver was always 
"So far as I know, yes."

of cartridges?" 

"As to that, I cannot say," Gar- 
den answered: "but I don't think 

"And here's a very important 
question. Garden." Vance went pn. 
"How many of the people that are 
here today could possibly have 
known that your father kept this 
loaded revolver in his desk? Now, 
think carefully before answering."' 
Garden meditated for several mo- 
ments. He looked oft into space and 
puffed steadily on his pipe. 

"I am trying to remember," he 
laid remiriiscenlly. "just who. waj 

"Then why," she demanded with 
histrionic indignation, "was this— 
this woman"— she glanced with ex- 
aggerated contempt at the nurse— 
"coming down the stairs herself 
when I came into the hall?" 

Vance made no attempt to hide 
a smile of amusement. 

"I'm. sure I don't know. I may 
ask her later. But she happens to 
be under instructions from me to 
let no one go upstairs. Will you be 
so good. Miss Weatherby," he add- 
ed, almost harshly, "as to return 
to the drawing room and remain 
there until the officials arrive?" 

The woman glared superciliously 
at the nurse, and then, with a toss 
of the head, strode toward the 

The nurse, obviously embar- 
rassed, turned to resume her post, 
but Vance stopped her. 

"Were you upstairs. Miss Bee- 
ton?" he asked in « kindly tone. 

She was standing very erect, her 
face slightly flushed. She looked 
Vance frankly and firmly in the 
eye and slowly shook her head. 

"I haven't left my post, Mr. 
Vance," she said quietly. "I un- 
derstand my duty." 

Vance returned her gaze for a 
moment, and then bowed his head 

"Thank you, Miss Beeton," he 

He came back into the den, and 
closing the door, addressed Garden 

"Now that we have disposed tem- 
porarily of the theatrical queen," 
—he smiled sombrely— "suppose we 
continue with our little chat." 

Garden chuckled mildly and be- 
gan repacking his pipe. 

"Queer girl, Madge; always act- 
ing like a tragedienne— but I don't 
think she's ever really been on the 

"You heard her tell me she was 
particularly fond of Swift," re- 
marked Vance. "Just what did she 
mean by that?" 

Garderf shrugged. ''Nothing at 
all, if you ask me. She didn't know 
that Woody was on earth, so to 
speak. But dead. Woody becomes a 
dramatic possibility." 

"Yes, yes — quite," murmured 
Vance. "Which reminds me: what 
was the tiff between Swift end Miss 
Graem about? I noticed your little 
peacemaker advances this after- 

have become infatuated with the 
nurse — he'd been seeing her around 
here for the past few months. And 
now that y oil mention it. he's been 
somewhat poisonous toward me on 
several occasions because she was 
more or less friendly with me and 
ignored him entirely. But I'll say 
this for Woody: if he did have Ideas 
about Miss Beeton, his taste is im- 
proving. She's an unusual girl- 
different . . ." 

Vance nodded his head slowly 
and gazed with peculiar concentra- 
tion out the window. 

"Yes," he murmured. "Quite dif- 
ferent." Then, as if bringing him- 
self back from some alien train of 
thought, he crushed out his ciga- 
rette and leaned forward. "How- 
ever, we'll drop speculation for the 
moment . . . Suppose you tell me 
something about the vault upstairs." 
Garden glanced up in evident sur- 

"There's nothing to tell about that 
old catch-all. It's neither mysteri- 
ous nor formidable. And it's really 
not a vault at all. Several years 
ago the pater found that he had ac- 
cumulated a lot of private papers 
and experimental data that he didn't 
j want casual callers messing in. So 
he had this fire-proof storeroom built 
to house these scientific treasures 
of his. The vault, as, you call it. 
was built as much for mere privacy 
as for actual safe-keeping. It's just 
a very small room with shelves 
around the walls." 

"Has everyone in the house ac- 
cess to it?" asked Vance. 

"Anyone so inclined," replied 
Garden. "But who in the name of 
Heaven, would want to go in there?" 
"Really, y' know, I haven't the 
groggiest notion." Vance returned, 
"except that I found the door to it 
unlatched when I was coming 
downstairs a little while ago." 

Garden shrugged carelessly, as if 
the matter was neither important 
nor unusual. 

"Probably," he suggested, "the 
pater didn't shut the door tightly 
when he went out this morning. It 
has a spring lock." 
"And the key?" 

"The key is a mere matter of 
form. It hangs conveniently on a 
small nail at trie side of the door." 
"Accordingly." mused Vance, "the 
vault is readily accessible to any- 
one in the household who cares to 
enter it." 

Vance went to the door. "Miss 
Beeton." he called, "will you be 

good enough to run upstairs and see 
if the key to the vault door is in 
its place?" 

A few moments later the nurse re- 
turned and informed Vance that the

that. We merely have an olu -r.iSr.- 
ioned barn door lift-latch on it." 

We could hear the sharp ringing 
of the entrance bell, and a door 
opening somewhere; Vance stepped 
out into the hall. A moment later 
the butler admitted District Attor- 
ney Markham and Sergeant Heath, 
accompanied by Sni'tkin and Hen- 

"Well, what's the trouble. 
Vane e?" Markham demanded 
brusqta ly. "I phoned Heath, as 
■ vmi " < '' (I- and brought him up 
with me." 

"It's a had business," Varrce 1 re- 
turned. "Same like I told you. I'm 
afraidybu're in for some difficulties. 
It's no ordin'ry crime. Everything 
I've been able to learn so far con- 
tradicts ew rything' else." He looked 
past Markiiani and nodded pleas- 
antly to Heath. ''Sorry to make 
you all tins trouble. Sergeant." 

"That's all right, Mr. Vance." 
Heath held out his hand in solemn 
good-nature. "Glad I was in when 
the chief called. What's it all about, 
and where do we go from here?" 
Mrs. Garden came bustling ener- 
getically down the hallway. 

"Are you the district attorney?" 
she asked, eyeing Markham fero- 
ciously. Without waiting for an an- 
swer, she went on: "This whole 
thing is an outrage. My poor neph- 
ew shot himself and this gentleman 
here"— she looked at Vance with 
supreme contempt— "is trying to 
make a scandal out of it." Her eyes 
swept over Heath and the two de- 
tectives. "And I suppose you're the 
police. There's no reason what- 
ever for your being here." 

Markham looked steadfastly at 
the woman and seemed to take in 
the situation immediately. 

"Madam, if things are as you 
say," he promised in a pacifying, 
yet grave, tone, "you need have no 
fear of any scandal." 

"I'll leave the matter entirely in 
your hands, sir," the woman re- 
turned with calm dignity. She 
turned and walked back up the hall. 
"A most tryin' and complicated 
state of affairs, Markham." Vance 
took the matter up again. "I ad- 
mit the chap upstairs appears to 
have killed himself. But that, I 
think, is what everyone is supposed 
to believe. Tableau superlicially cor- 
rect. Stage direction and decor 
fairly good. But the whole far from 
perfect. ' I observed several dis- 

Garden, who had been standing in 
the doorway to the den, came for- 
ward, and Vance introduced him to 
Markham and Heath. Then Vance 
turned to the sergeant. 

"I think you'd better have either 
Snilkin or Hennessey remain down 
here and see that no one leaves the 
apartment for a little while." He 
addressed Garden. "I hope you 
don't mind.'' 

"Not at all." Garden replied com- 
placently. "I'll join the others in 
the drawing-room. I feci the need 
of a highball, anyway. " He includ- 
ed us all in a curt bow and moved 
up the hall. 

"We'd better go up to the 
roof now, Markham," said Vance. 
"I'll run over the whole matter with 
you. There are some strange angles 
to the case. I don't at all like it." 
He moved down the hall, and 
Markham and Heath and I followed 
him. But before he mounted the 
stairs he stopped and turned to the 

"You needn't keep watch here any 
longer, Miss Beeton," he said. "And 
thanks for your help. But one 
more favor: when the medical ex- 

key was where it was always kept, j aminer comes, please bring him di- 
Vance thanked her and, closing I rectly upstairs. 

the den door, turned again to Gar- 

"There's one more rather impor- 
tant matter that you can clear up 
for me— it may have a definite bear- 
ing on the situation. Can the gar- 
den be entered from the fire exit 
opening on the roof?" 

"Yes, by George!" The other sat 
up with alacrity. "There's a gate 
in the east fence of the garden, 
just beside the privet hedge, which 
leads upon the terrace on which the 
fire exit of the building opens. When 
we had the fence built we were re- 
quired to put this gate in because 
of the fire laws. But it's rarely 
used, except on hot summer nights. 
Still, if anyone came up the main

proportions in 1936 than' ever before 
William M. Adams, superintendent 
announced today. The camp is 6p- 
jerated under techinical supervision 
I of the Soil Conservation Service. 

Approximately sixty-five farms in 
Boone, Gallatin, Grant and Kenton 
counties involving more than 9500 
acres of agricultural land, are now 
cooperating in the demonstrational 
program, Supt. Adams said. 

From a techional standpoint, the 
demonstration program of the samp 
remains unchanged during the year 
Supt. Adams' report declares. It con- 
tinued the introduction of such ben- 
eficial farming pracitices as strip 
cropping and contour tillage; and 
the retirement of steep slopes and 
badly eeroded areas from cultivat- 
ion. The camp also recomends ap- 
plication of agricultural limestton;? 
and fertilizer, improving texture of 
soil by use of legumes, green man- 
ure and crop residues, and longer 
well-balanced crop rotations. 

In the camp area more than one- 
hundred-twenty acres have been 
stripped cropped or will be stripped 
under present agreements. Approx- 
imately eight hundred acres of con- 
tour tillage have been covered by 
voluntary agrements. 

Application of agricultpral lime- 
stone advocated by the Soil Con- 
servation Service on acid fields and 
pastures, was advanced by gather- 
ing more than 350 tons of native 
rock. Approximately 1560 small

By Andrews Steele Co. Newport, 
Ky., In a Suit 

The Andrews Steel Company of 
Newport, Ky., and five subsidary 
companies filed suits in the U. S 
District Court at Lexington, Ky., 
Friday, attacking the constitution- 
ality of the Social Security Act. 

The act is not a tax, but "an at- 
tempt to capriciously confiscate pri- 
vate^ property and deprive liberty 
without due process of law and with- 
out Just compensation, and would 
further deprive the plaintiffs of the 
liberty to contract with their em- 
ployes," the petition claims. 

The suit asks that Seldon R 
Glenn, collector of Internal revenue 
for the district of Kentucky, be en- 
joined from levying the per capita 
payroll tax against the companies 
and that Mac Swinford, Cynthiana 
U. S. district attorney, he restricted 
from enforcing the penalties for 
nonpayment as provided in the act

By the General Assembly of Ken-

to Its Adjournment 

After making last-minute com- 
promises in the tobacco control bill 
and giving final approval to the 
legislation, the special session of th? 
Kentucky General Assembly ad- 
journed sine die Saturday night. 
• Two others of the 28 subjects of 
the session were completed during 
the day— a bill prohibiting commer- 
cial sale of prison-made goods, and 
a bill to facilitate purchase of a

An attempt to reconsider this bill 
in the Senate in the closing hours 
of the session was defeated when 
Lieutenant-Governor Keen Johnson 
broke a tie vote and killed the at^

which the vote was taken found !

tion. On the tie, Johnson voted to 
kill the motion. 

It was the first time he had cast 
a vote directly on the bill. 

The compromise made in the 
tobacco bill attempt to make the 
legislation effective in 1937, and tc 
correct possible constitutional de- 
fects. As first passed, the bill would 
not have gone into effect until 
April 17, although it required control

An emergency clause was attached 
Saturday, making the bill effective

scon as signed fa? the Governor 
authority is granted for negotiation 
of a control compact with these other 

No restriction of acreage is requir- 
ed until such a compact has been 
made effective by similar control 
laws in the other states. For burley 
tobacco, the compact would require 
adherence of Virginia, North Caro- 
lina, Tennessee, Ohio and Indiana 
as to 1937. 

For other types of tobacco, it 
would be required that Virginia and 
Tennessee join with Kentucky be- 
fore any control of production might 
become effective. 

The minimum acreage allowed to 
any producer— in case control be- 
came effective— was compromised by 
the committee after the House and 
Senate had disagreed on this ques- 
tion. As finally passed, the min- 
imum tobacco acreage is two acres 
for the owner of a farm of 30 acres 
A smaller farm would have a pro- 
portionate amount of tobacco acre- 
age. Eight Eastern Kentucky coun- 
ties, omitted from the bill previously 
were included before final passage. 

Several of the most adrent advo- 
cates of the tobacco bill expressed 
the opinion privately, after its en- 
actment had been completed, that 
the bill never would be operative 
Possible unconstitutionality of the 
Kentucky law, and the possible fail- 
ure of other states to Join in the 
necessary compacts, were ascribed 
as reasons for their doubts. 

Others insited the bill would be 
effective. —I

Denhardt Indicted 
For Murder of Widow 

Erlanger Colored 
Woman Arrested 

For the Murder of Two of Her 
Children With a Razor. A 
Third In Serious Condition 

Mrs. Louise Thomas, age 40, col- 
ored, was arrested and placed in the 
Covington jail charged with the 
murder of two of her children by 
; cutting their throats with a razor 
late Friday. A third child is in a 
.serious condition with its throa* 

Late Friday, when her husband. 
John Thomas, age 60, a WPA worker, 
returned to his home on Ash street, 
he found his wife lying on a blood- 
stained bed with the three children. 
Mary Lou, 9, and Robert. 15 months 
I old, were dead, and John WiWam 
I in a serious conditoiri, all with their 
; throats slashed. 

He called Marshal T. W. Rash and 
; Kenton county deputy sheriff Ed- 
Iward Taylor. The woman told the 
officers that a white man came to 
I their home early Friday and threat- 
| ened to kill the children because she 
had not sent them to school, ani she 
killed them to prevent him carrying 
out his threat. 

She also told Marshal Rash she 
had jumped into a well to end her 
life, but the officer stated her cloth- 
ing was not wet. 

The woman is undoubtedly insane 
and she was placed in the Coving- 
ton jail for observation.

Growers Waited Too Long 

Two brothers, tobacco growers, 
raised a large crop of tobacco in 
Boone county, accorddng to report 
and stripped considerable of the 
crop and instead of taking it to the 
market, delayed until they had strip- 
ped the whole crop, which was last 
week. They were offered 45 cents 
per pound by a buyer for the entire 
crop when stripped, which they re- 
fused. Last week, after the market 
had slumped, they took the entire 
crop to market and received an av- 
erage of 19 cents per pound. As the 
old saying goes, "a bird in the hand 
is worth two in the bush." And it 
might be said twenty-six in the bush, 
as that is exactly what they lost. 

Mrs. D. B. Wallace left for Tampa 
Fla., by train Friday night. She an-

for is a serious thing, and yet tests have 
shown that over 20 % of all school chil-

Neither you nor the child can tell whether

pillows plumped up . . . and even in 
the porter's quiet query, "What time 
do you want to be called?" 
, But it's "like home" in many more 
ways than these: Because, just as in 
your own home, we must see that the 
coal bin is full, the worn furniture re- 
placed. We must employ help, shop 
for food, buy new dishes — and pay 
taxes. Yes, about 7% of our revenues 
goes for taxes to help support your 
government, your cities, your schools, 
your highways. 

So you see, we're just home-folks like 
you . . . sharing your problems and pleas- 
ures, contributing to your community. 
We hope you will think of us that way. •

Letter From San Antonio 

San Antonio, Texas, 
January 10, 1937. 
Mr. J. R. Wallace, 
Walton, Kentucky. 
Dear Mr. Wallace: 

The label on our Advertiser shows 
that our subscription expires this 
month, so I am sending you a check, 
and am asking that you }ust move 
the date up in accordance with same. 
Have been having your paper sent 
to us and so have been able to keep 
up with the happenings in that sec- 

The past six weeks have been pas- 
sed in travel and in a longer stay at 
San Antonio. On Thanksgiving day 
we left Cincinnati and traveled west 
by U. S. 50 through southern Ind- 
iana and Illinois , reaching Vin- 
cen$nes, Indiana, the first night. We 
visited the beautiful monument er- 
ected to the memory of George Rog- 
ers Clark, and the old French Cath- 
edral, which was erected in the early 
part of the eighteenth century. 
Highway 50 crosses the Wabash river 
on a beautiful new bridge and enters 
the state of Illinois. It passes 
through some of the good farming 
sections of that state. Most famous 
town we visited was Salem, famous 
as the birthplace of William Jen- 
nings Bryan. In the late afternoon 

come one of Texas' foremost cities 
with a population of about a quarter 
of a million. Near San Antonio are 
four Missions which date back to the 
early eighteenth century, when 
Spanish Missionaries ventured be- 
yond the Rio Grande to Christiani/* 
the Indians. In the center of tht 
city is the Alamo, most famous o< 
Missions, later a fortress, In whlcn 
every defender of Texas liberty gave 
his life rather than surrender. Un- 
til recently the Alamo was in ruins 
but it is now being restored, as are 
some of the other Missions. 

Here also is the army post, Fort 
Sam Houston, established in 1865 
and the largest military aviation 
training unit in the nation, Randolpn 
Field, known as the "West Point of 
the Air." 

The climate of San Antonio if 
semi-tropical. Recently a new slogan 
was selected for the city. It was 
"San Antonio, home of the Alamo 
gulf breezes and sunshine." 

We hope to leave here soon to 
visit Phoenix, Arizona and possibly 
California, before returning to Ken- 
tucky, in April. 

My best wishes to you and Mrs 
Wallace for a happy and successful 
new year. 

Your friend, 
Anna Cleek McCabe

For several years sheep raisers Jn 
Boone county have had severe losses 
in ewes, caused by acidosis or preg- 
nancy diseases. Now is the time to 
feed a proper I ration to prevent the 
occurrence of acidosis, according to 
David Colville, Assistant County 

Acidosis developes as a result of 
Improper nutrition, just previous to 
lambing time. Prevention of preg- 
nancy disease depends on the sel- 
ection of good vigorous ewes as 
breeders, good feeding and the con- 
trol of parasites, especially stomach 
worms. At this time of the year 
ewes should receive at least M to V4 
pound of grain daily and a large 
part of the hay should consist of 
some legume, alfalfa, lespedeza, red 
clover, soybeans or a good mixed hay 

A good grain mixture is equal parts 
of corn, bran and oats, with linseed 
oil meal in the proportion one pound 
to eight younds gram mixture. When 
ewes are in poor condition the quan- 
tity of corn should be increased. It 
might be advisable to feed a suitable 
mineral mixture. A mixture of one 
part pulverized limestone dust, one 
part of sulphur and ten parts of 
common salt will be more satisfac- 
tory than salt alone. 

It is almost impossible to do any- 
thing for ewes once they get down 
with this disease. Invariably they 
will be lost. A cheaper method 
would be to {jrjsvent the occurence of 
this disease by good feed and man- 
agement practices. 

Many people think that sheep can 
go several days without water. Ex- 
periments have been carried ouit 
which show that sheep can go with- 
out feed longer than they can with- 
out water without suffering ill effects 

A circular has been prepared by 
Dr. F. E. Hull and Dr. W. W. Dim- 
ock, of the Kentucky Experiment 
Station, on Pregnancy Disease of' 
Sheep. These circulars are one file 
at the County Agent's Office and are

charged for each automobile cross- 
nig it. Cars were so numerous that 
it took about forty minutes to make 
the crossing. At no other point save 
in the center of St. Louis did we 
encounter heavy traffic. We have 
found the western highways are not 
nearly so crowded as are 'our own U. 
S. 25 or U. S. 42, in Kentucky. 

We continued on U. S. 50 across 
the state of Missouri and spent one 
night in Kansas City, which is a 
bustling business center. Our main 
objective was Council Grove, Kan- 
sas, where we visited my cousin, Mr. 
George W. Cleek and wife. He \i 
now 88, but as physically active and 
mentally alert as the average person 
of 60. Mr. Cleek may be remember- 
ed by some of the oldest residents 
of Boone and Grant counties. He 
was born near Union, Boone county 
and spent his boyhood days there 
but when a young man went to 
Crittenden, where he engaged In 
business until he decided to go west 
after a fire destroyed his place of 
business. He can give many inter- 
esting accounts of his experiences in 
the early days in Missouri and Kan- 
sas. We also visited his sister Mrs 
Mary Cleek Jones, who is also a res- 
ident of Council Grove. This town 
is interesting from a historic point 
of view, as it marks the beginning 
of the Santa Fe Trail to the farther 
western part of flie county. In it 
are such historic spots as the "Post- 
office Oak," where settlers going 
west left letters for others following 
them, the "Custer Elm," where the 
Indian fighter. Custer parleyed with 
the Indians. 

From Council Grove, we drove to 
Tulsa, Oklahoma, passing through 
some of Oklahoma's rich oil fields 
We also passed through Oklahoma

where the legislature was in special 

From Oklahoma City, our course

at which point we arrived, just too

W. Truett. 

From Dallas, we drove to Austin. 
Texas, and there visited Texas State

ful building well located We next 
reached San Antonio, Texas, which 
has proved to be such a pleasant and 
interesting place, that we have re-

of the city goes back to the beginn-

and it has progressed through much

With Further Reports Coming In 

Later, Because of Delays in Some 

Counties in Conducting Drive 

Friends of the American Red Cross 
in Kentucky, will be glad to know 
that the 1936 rollcall resulted in a 
substantial increase in the member- 
ship in Kentucky, 61,800 having given 
themselves the pleasure of taking 
part in this great enterprise. 

Some counties, which were delay- 
ed in conducting their annual roll- 
call have not reported, but the pre- 
liminary figures show a gratifying 
gain in membership for the state and 
some counties exceeded their quotas 

In CampbellCounty the member- 
ship increased from 2,640 to more 
than 3,000; Kenton county showed 
more than 4,000, compared with a 
smaller number in 1936; Louisville

started the campaign and was com-

Demonstration By Workers A- 
gainst the Strike 

DETROIT. Jan. 18— More than 
9,000 men, virtually the entire per- 
sonnel of the Chevrolet Gear and 
Axle Division lof General Motovs 
Corporation, staged a demonstration 
in Detroit last week against the 
strikers which have shut down Gen- 
eral Motors plants and caused en- 
forced idleness to more than 135.000 

The Detroit demonstration occurr- ] 
ed at the main plant of Chevrolet's I 
four units on Holbrook avenue and 
! St, Aubin. 

There has been no strike in these ' 
Detroit uni:s of Chevrolet. But the 
units, devoted to the manufacture 
of gears, axles, steel wheels, and 
knee action mechanism, are key sup-, 
pliers of these automotive parts tc 
ten assembly plants, and the sit 
down strikers in other plants have 
stopped ail operations here. 

It is estimated that more than 9i! 
per cent of the men m the plant? 
are eager to return to their jobs. 

The employes assembled last week 
to receive their pay checks, their 
last pay until the resumption of

personal telegrams to Governor 
Frank Murphy of Michigan and 
President Roosevelt. After the meet- 
ings, the four groups assembled in 
front of the main plant for a mass 
demonstration of protest under ban- 
ners with' the legends: "We don'f!

Wasp Beats Spider 

in Battle to Death 

Fort Worth, Tex.— G. W. Cloer 
was the only wif'ness to an un- 
usual battle of nature on his front 
porch recently— between a black 
spader and a wasp. 

The wasp, homeward bound 
with a cargo of winter food, was 
victor after a hard fight. The 
spider had a weight advantage 
and used his long, rough legs, 
but one well-placed sting ended 
its life. 

Cloer said the encounter lasted 
several minutes and the contest- 
ants rambled and rolled over 
most of his front porch. It was 
an .«ven fight until the wasp got 
a seat on the spider's back. 

such fantastic bits of folk-lore per- 
sist, and of late, by one of those co- 
incidences which often crop up in 
current happenings, they have been 
playing their part in court records. 

"I saw her bend down, and her 
head changed into a dog's head 
and she had big bumps on her 

"I saw blazing streams of fire 
come from '.he witch's head." 

"I saw her fall to the floor, ex- 
pand In the body while her head 
grew small and like a fish, with 
two horns springing out, and a tail 
from her back." 

That was testimony in a trial for 
witchcraft in Recorder Arthur 
Brown's police court in Woodbridge 
N. J. 

"Do you actually believe that 
there is such a thing as a witch?" 
an amazed attorney asked one of 
the women who testified about these 
eerie events. 

"Seeing is believing." laconically 
replied the woman, who said that 
she had witnessed this. 

A few weeks later, in Judge Mc- 
Devitt's court in Philadelphia, an- 
other "witch" stood before him for 
sentence, not a sentence for 
"witchcraft," but for the more 
prosaic criminal charge of "for-

Vitamin B Is Now Being 
Produced Synthetically 

More, extensive use of vitamin B 
compound for human consumption 
is forecast in Modern Medicine, 
published in Minneapolis, as result 
of recent discovery of synthetic vita- 
min B. 

Production of the artificial vita- 
min was achieved by Dr. R. R. Wil- 
liams, according to the publica- 

The process of making artificial 
vitamin B, the first vitamin discov- 
ered, requires the combining of a 
drug which puts people to sleep with 
a sulphur-containing substance used 
to vulcanite rubber. 

Synthetic production of the vita- 
min, eliminating the costly and 
longer method of extracting the 
pure substance from the vegetable 
in which it is contained, will open 
a new field in medicine, the maga- 
zine predicted. 

Vitamin B, discovered in 1896, 
even before the word "vitamin" had 
been coined, promotes health and 
well being in the body. It also is a 
factor in growth of the body. 

It is effective for the treatment of 
certain nervous ailments and lack of

as beri-beri.

Philadelphia. — A sudden upflare 
of "hex" and witchcraft cases, in- 
volving criminal angles, in various 
parts of the United States in the 
past few weeks, has served notice 
upon sociologists and students of 
crime that the ancient superstitions, 
clung to by many tribes and peo-

Angry Buck Aroused by 
Bird Shot Fights Hunter 

Herkimer, N. Y.— Gordon Clark, 
hunting rabbits with a shotgun load- 
ed with bird shot, came upon a 200- 
pound 11 point buck in the northern 
Herkimer county woods. 

The temptation, he said, was so 
great that he forgot all about rab- 
bits and turned the light weapon on 
the deer. 

The pellets merely stung the deer, 
and Clark and David Caldwell, a 
companion, ran for shelter when 
the angry animal charged. The 
pair dodged about trees and the 
buck strayed ahead. 

Clark reloaded and followed, only 
this time he used heavy buckshot, 
ordinarily used for deer. He trailed 
the deer for six hours before shoot- 
ing. The animal dropped and Clark 
approached with his knife for the

Convict Triea to Sell Hideout 

When he escaped from prison in 
Prague, Czechoslovakia, a convict 
took refuge in a disused factory. He 
placed a notice on the gates offering 
the office furniture for sale, and 
was selling stock he had found in 
the sheds when one of his customers 
became suspicious. The police took 
him back to prison. 

Old Hawaiian Money Good 

Money of the former Hawaiian 
monarchy, issued before the is- 
lands were annexed to the United 
States, is still good for its face 
value, according to a recent ruling 
by the territorial treasurer. The 
question came up when a $50 bill 
of 1886 was found in a safe deposit 
box during inventory of an estate. 


T"\ESSERTS for the family should 
*-"' appeal to the older members 
as well as to the children if we want 
to keep everybody happy. No house- 
keeper cares • to waste her time 
making two desserts and yet oc- 
casionally husband's craving for pie 
should be satisfied. 

One of the easiest ways to make 
one dessert do the work of two is 
to make a filling which can be used 
for the pie and also for a pudding. 
A cocoanut cream filling will delifth'. 
in either case. It you are planning 
an apple or a cranberry and raisir- 
pie for the family at the same time 
a small baking dish may be fillet 
with the fruit, sweetened and fla 
vored. A few buttered crumbs or 
cubes of bread may be sprinkled 
over the top and it may be baked 
with the pie. 

Pumpkin pudding does not sounti 
so appetizing as pumpkin pie oi 
tarts, but it is very attractive 
with a garnish of whipped cream. 
A teaspoonful of maple sirup ,or 
honey may be put on top of the 
cream just before serving. A quick 
lemon custard can be used in the 
same way. For the children's des- 
sert, it can be put into glass custard 
cups or into china ramekins, covered 
with a meringue and baked in the 
oven just long enough to brown the

How to Use Enamel 

In painting with enamel, take up 
an ample, but not excessive amount 
on the brush and flow it on with 
broad, sweeping strokes. Go over 
the coating again if necessary, but 
do not brush it back and forth as 
you would with paint. The first 
two coats may be flat paint— that 
is, non-glossy. For very particular 
work, each coat should be rubbed 
lightly with fine sandpaper 
pumice and water.

About Lacquer 

Lacquer is a solution of a sub- 
stance similar to celluloid in which 
the desired coloring pigment has 
been mixed. It differs from paint 
primarily in that it dries by the 
simple evaporation of solvents 
whereas paints and varnishes de- 
pend for their drying upon a slow 
chemical process of oxidation.

Practiced on Some Farms 

The Idaho experiment station 
found in a recent survey many uses 
for electric fence equipment be- 
sides those usually advocated. For 
instance, says the Country Home 
13-tf | Magazine, one farmer was using an 
■ electric "poker" to facilitate cattle 
loading. Another farmer had a 
charged wire around the inside of a 
scale fence to keep animals on the 
platform. Other uses included wiring 
stalls to teach horses or bulls not 
to attempt to break out; protecting 
flower gardens from night raids; 
educating range animals to avoid 
wire, thereby reducing wire cuts; 
preventing hogs from rooting under 
a woven wire fence; breaking horses 
of halter pulling by putting a 
charged wire back of them; check- 
ing the sp"read of Bang's disease by 
cows which nose one another across 
line fences.

Some Idaho farmers are working 
on the idea of repelling jack rab- 
bits by means of electrified wire. 
Another survey made in Illinois on 
farms which had used electric fence 
for several years showed favorable 
results, but also demonstrated that 
one wire was not sufficient to stop 
pigs and other small animals. How- 
ever, animals that have been 
shocked a few times soon learn to 
avoid all wires, so that it is not 
necessary to keep the fence con- 
tinually charged.

CHAPTER I— Phllo Vance, famous de- 
. J«pUve. and John F. X. Markham. dis- 
trict attorney for New York county are 
dining In Vance's apartment when 
Vance receives an anonymous telephone 
message informing him of a "disturbing 
psychological tension at Professor Ephri- 
am Garden's apartment" advising that 

i. read U P on r adio active sodium, con- 
sult a passage In the Aeneld and coun- 
seling that "Equanimity is essential." 
.Professor Garden Is famous In chemical 
research. The message, decoded by 
Vance, reminds him that Professor Gar- 
Sf" 5 s ° n , .floyd and his puny cousin. 
Woode Swift, are addicted to horse-rac- 
ing. Vance says that "Equanimity" is 
a horse running next day In the River- 
jnont handicap. Vance is convinced that 
the message was sent by Dr. Siefert. 
the Garden s family physician. He ar- 
ranges to have lunch next day at the 
Gardens penthouse. 

CHAPTER II.— Vance is greeted by 
Floyd Garden and meets Lowe Hammle. 
an elderly follower of horse racing. 
*loyd expresses concern over Swift's 
queer actions. Gathered around an elab- 
orate loud speaker service, listening to 
the racing are CecU Kroon. Madge 
Weatherby and Zalia Graem. who bet 
varying amounts on the race. There is 
tension under the surface gaiety. Zalia 
and Swift are not on speaking terms. 
Mrs. Garden, supposedly ill, comes 
downstairs and places a $100 bet on a

root garden to hear the results. Floyd 
follows Swift, remaining away several 
minutes. Kroon leaves to keep an ap-

answers a phone call in the den. Miss

shot through the head with a revolver 
nearby. He says Swift has been mur- 
dered. After calling the police, he finds 
the door of a vault ajar. 

CHAPTER IV.— Kroon returns and is 
sharply questioned by Vance, who finds 
he had not left the building. Vance or- 
ders Miss Beeton to guard the stairway 
and prevent Mrs. Garden and Zalia 
from viewing Swift's body. Floyd Gar- 
den admits the revolver belongs to his

qualities which probably made him 
an easy victim for the murderer 

Baa "been commTttea, 1 wouldn't

doughy sergeant. But, even so, 
Markham, I can assure you the few 
drops of blood you see on the chap- 
pie's temple could not have thick- 
ened to the extent they had when 
I first saw the body— they must 
have been exposed to the air for 
several minutes. And, as I say, I 
was up here approximately thirty 
seconds after we heard the shot." 
"But that being the case," re- 
turned Markham in astonishment, 
"how can you possibly explain the 

Vance straightened a little and 
looked at the district attorney with 
unwonted gravity. 

"Swift," he said, "was not killed 
by the shot we heard." 

"That don't make sense to me, 
Mr. Vance," Heath interposed, 

"Just a moment. Sergeant." 
Vance nodded to him in friendly 
fashion. "When I realized that the 
shot that wiped out this Johnnie's 
existence was not the shot that we 
had heard, I tried to figure out 
where the fatal shot could have 
been fired without our hearing it 
below. And I've found the place. It 
was in a vault-like store-room— prac- 
tically sound-proof, I should say- 
on the other side of the passage- 
way that lads to the study. I found 
the door unlocked and looked for ev- 
idence of some activity there ..." 
Markham had risen and taken a 
few nervous steps around the pool 
In the center of the roof. 

"Did you find any evidence," he 
asked, "to corroborate your the- 

"Yes — unmistakable evidence." 
Vance walked over to the still fig- 
ure in the chair and pointed to the 
thick-lensed glasses tipped forward 
on the nose. "To begin with, Mark- 
ham, you will notice that Swift's 

bullet wounds have a queer way of 
acting sometimes. Anyway, there 
ought to be a lot mora gore." 

"Precisely," Vance nodded. "My 
theory is that he was shot else- 
where and brought to this chair." 

Doremus made a wry face. 

"Was shot? Then you don't think 
it was suicide?" He pondered a

Markham, Sergeant Heath and two de- 
tectives arrive. 

"There's the Johnnie," he said. 
"Just as he was found." 

Markham and Heath moved clos- 
er to the huddled figure and studied 
it for a few moments. At length 
Heath looked up with a perplexed 

"Well, Mr. Vance," he announced 
querulously, "it looks like suicide, 
all right." He shifted his cigar from 
one corner of his mouth to the other. 
Markham too turned to Vance. He 
nodded his agreement with the Ser- 
geant's observation. 

"It certainly has the appearance 
of suicide, Vance," he remarked. 

"No — oh. no," Vance sighed. "Not 
suicide. A deuced brutal crime— 
snd clever no end." 

Markham smoked a while, still 
staring at the dead man skeptically; 
then he sat down facing Vance. 

"Let's have the whole story be- 
fore Doremus gets here," he re- 

Vance remained standing, his 
eyes moving aimlessly about the 
garden. After a moment he re- 
counted succinctly, but carefully, 
the entire sequence of events of the 
afternoon, describing the group of 
people present, with their relation, 
ships and temperamental clashes; 
the various races and wagers; 
Swift's retirement to the garden for 
the results of the big Handicap; 
and, finally, the shot which had 
aroused us all and brought us up- 
stairs. When he had finished, Mark- 
ham worried his chin for a moment. 
"I still can't see a single fact," he 
objected, "that does not point logi- 
cally to suicide." 

Vance leaned against the wall be- 
side the study window and lighted 
a cigarette. 

"Of course," he said, "there's 
nothing in the outline I've given you 
to indicate murder. Nevertheless, 

it was murder; and that outline Is 
exactly the concatenation of events 
which the murderer wants us to 
accept. We are supposed to arrive 
at the obvious conclusion of suicide. 
Suicide as the result of losing mon- 
ey on horses is by no means a rare 
occurrence. It is not impossible 
that the murderer's scheme was in- 
fluenced by this account. But there 
are other factors, psychological and 
actual, which belie this whole super- 
flcial and deceptive structure." He 
drew on his cigarette and watched 
the thin blue ribbon of smoke dis- 
perse in the light breeze from the 
river. "To begin with," he went on, 
"Swift was not the suicidal type. 
In the first place, Swift was a weak- 
ling and a highly imaginative one. 
Moreover, he was too hopeful and 
ambitious — too sure of his own Ji: <g- 
ment and good luck— to put himself 
out of the world simply because 
he had lost all his money. The fact 
that Equanimity might not win the 
race was an eventuality which, as a 
confirmed gambler, he would have 
taken into consideration beforehand. 
In addition, his nature was such 
that, if he were greatly disappoint- 
ed the result would be self-pity and 
hatred of others. He might, in an 


"But see here, Vance." Markham 
leaned forward protestingly. "No 
amount of mere psychological anal- 
ysis can make a crime out of a situ- 
ation as seemingly obvious as this, 
one. I must have more definite 
reasons than you have given me be- 
fore I would be justified in dis- 
carding the theory of suicide." 

"Oh, I dare say," nodded Vance. 
"But I have more tangible evidence 
that the Johnnie did not eliminate 
himself from this life." 

"Well, let's have it." Markham 
fidgeted impatiently in his chair.

stretched forward at an awkward 
angle. The trousers are twisted out 
of place and look most uncomforta-

riding his shoulder, so that his col- 
lar is at least three inches above Heath 
his exquisite mauve shirt. No man 
could endure to have his clothes so 
outrageously askew, even on the 
point of suicide — he would have

been dragged to the chair and 
placed in it."

the limp figure of Swift as Vance

modified; "especially fh view of the

quickly. "That's another item to 
which I would call your attention.

Had Swift shot himself in that chair, 
A believe his first impulsive move-

"And perhaps you know where it 

"Yes— oh, yes." Vance nodded. 
"That's why I urged you to come 
here. That piece of glass is at

Markham showed a new interest. 
"Where did you find it?" he de- 
manded brusquely. 

"I found it," Vance told him, 
"on the tiled floor in the vault 
across the hall. And it was near 
some scattered papers which could 
easily have been knocked to the 
floor by some one falling against 

Markham's eyes opened incredu- 

"I'm beginning to see why you 
wanted me and the sergeant here," 
he said slowly. "But what I don't 
understand, Vance, is that second 
shot that you heard. How do you 
account for it?" 

Vance drew deeply on his ciga- 

moment. "It could be, of course " 
he decided finally. "Find the rest of 
the blood and you'll probably know 
where his death occurred." 

"Thanks awfully, doctor." Vance 
smiled faintly. "That did flash 
through my mind, don't y' know; 
but I believe the blood was wiped 
up. I was merely hopin' that your 
findings would substantiate my the- 
ory that he did not shoot himself 
while sitting in that chair, without 
any one else around." 

Doremus shrugged indifferently. 

"That's reasonable enough as- 
sumption," he said. "There really 
ought to be more blood. He died

tions?" asked Vance.

Vance nodded. "1 hadn't expect-

in my own theory. Stout fella, Do- 
femus, understands his business. He

it. There can be m question that 
Swift was in the vault when he was 
shot; that he fell to the floor, brush- 
ing down some of the papers; that

Swift was a small, slender man; 
probably didn't weigh over a hun- 
dred and twenty pounds; and it 
would have been no great feat of 
strength for someone to have thus 
transported him after death ..." 

There were footsteps in the corri- 
dor and L as our eyes involuntarily 
turned toward the door, we saw the 
dignified elderly figure of Professor 
Ephraim Garden. I recognized him 
immediately from pictures I had 

He was a tall man, despite his 
stooped shoulders; and, though he 
was very thin, he possessed a firm- 
ness of bearing which made one feel 
that he had retained a great meas- 
ure of the physical power that had 
obviously been his in youth. There 
was benevolence in the somewhat 
haggard face, but there was also 
shrewdness in his gaze; and the con- 
tour of his mouth indicated a latent 

He bowed to us with an old-fash- 
ioned graciousness and took a few 
steps into the study. 

"My son has just informed me " 
he said in a slightly querulous voice 
"of the tragedy that has occurred 
here this afternoon. I'm sorry that 
I did not return home earlier, as is 
my wont on Saturdays, for in that 
event the tragedy might have been 
averted. I myself would have been 
in the study here and would probab- 
ly have kept an eye on my nephew. 
In any event, no one could then have 
got possession of my revolver." 

"I am not at all sure, Doctor Gar- 
den," Vance returned grimly, "that 
your presence here this afternoon 
would have averted the tragedy. It 
is not nearly so simple a matter as 
it appears at first glance." 

Professor Garden sat down in a 
chair of antique workmanship near 
the door and, clasping his hands 
tightly, leaned forward. 

"Yes, yes. So I understand. And 
I want to hear more about this af- 
fair." The tension in his voice was 
patent. "Floyd told me that Woode's 
death had all the appearance of sui- 
cide, but that you do not accept 
that conclusion. Would it be asking 


"Has your son," asked 
"any income of his own?" 

"None whatever," the professor 
told him. "He has made a little 
money here and there, on various 
enterprises— largely connected with 
snorts— but he is entirely dependent 
on the allowance my wife and I 
give him. It's a very liberal one— 
too liberal, perhaps, judged by con- 
ventional standards. But J gee no 
reason not to indulge the boy. It 
isn't his fault that he hasn't the 
temperament for a professional ca- 
reer, and has no flair for business." 

"A very liberal attitude. Doctor." 
Vance murmured: "especially for 
one who is himself so wholehearted- 
ly devoted to the more serious 
things of life as you are . But 

what of Swift: did he have an in- 
dependent income?" 

"His father." the professor ex- 
plained, "left him a very comfort- 
able amount; but I imagine he 
squandered it or gambled most of it 
a way . " : - , , 

"There's one more question," 
Vance continued, "that I'd like to 
ask you in connection with your 
will and Mrs. Garden's: were your 
son and nephew aware of the dispo- 
sition of the estate?" 

"I couldn't say. It's quite possi- 
ble they were. Neither Mrs. Gar- 
den nor I have regarded the subject 
as a^ secret ..But what, may I 
ask," - Professor Garden gave 
Vance a puzzled look— "has this to 
do with the present terrible situa- 

"I'm sure I haven't the remotest 
idea," Vance admitted frankly 
"I'm merely probin' rbund in the 
dark, in the hope of findin' some 
small ray of light." 

Hennessey, the detective whom 
Heath had ordered to remain on 
guard below, came lumbering up 
the passageway to the study. 

"There's a guy downstairs, Ser- 
geant," he reported, "who says he's 
from the telephone company and 
has got to fix a bell or somethin'. 
He's fussed around downstairs and 
couldn't find anything wrong there." 
Heath shrugged and looked in- 
quiringly at Vance. 

"It's quite all right. Hennessey." 
Vance told the detective. "Let him 
come up." 

Hennessey saluted half-heartedly 
and went out. 

"You know, Markham," Vance 
said, "I wish this infernal buzzer 
hadn't gone out of order at just 
this time. I abominate coinci- 
dences — " 

"Do you mean," Professor Gar- 
den interrupted, "that inter-commu- 
nicating buzzer between here and 
the den downstairs? ... It was 
working all right this morning— 
Sneed summoned me to breakfast 
with it as usual." 

»* V^»- J«*;afta*j» 

And Tie disappeared down the pis- 

Vance smoked for a moment in 
silence, looking down at the floor. 

"I don't know, Markham. It's 
dashed mystifyin'. But I have a 
notion that the same person who 
fired the shot we heard disconnected 
those wires ." 

Suddenly he stepped to m»e side 
behind the draperies and crouched 
down, his eyes peering out cautious- 

"Yes, yes. 

nodded Vance.

At this moment the nurse ap- 
peared in the doorway leading to 

one belonging to Professor Garden 
and was always kept in the desk 
in the study. Consequently, if Swift 
had decided, after the race had 
been run, to shoot himself, he would 
hardly have gone into the study, 
procured the gun, then come back 

the roof. With her was Doctor 

Doremus, and behind the medical 

examiner were Captain Dubois and 

Detective Bellamy, the finger-print 

men, and Peter Quackenbush the

himself right there m the study back downstairs . 
—at the desk from which he had 
obtained the revolver." 

Vance moved forward a little aa 
if for emphasis. 

"Another point about that head- 
phone — the point that gave me the 
first hint of murder — is the fact 
that the receiver at present is over 
Swift's right ear. Earlier today I 
saw Swift put the head-phone on 

finger-print officers. 

When the three men had gone in- 
side, Doremus drew in an ex- 
aggerated sigh and spoke to Heath 
impatiently. . 

"How about getting your corpus 
delicti over on the settee? Easier 
to examine him there." 
"O. K., Doc- 
Two detectives lifted Swift's limp 
body and placed it on the same 
wicker divan where Zalia Graem 
had lain when she collapsed at the 
sight of the dead man. 

Doremus went to work in his usu- 
al swift and efficient fashion. When 
he had finished the task, he threw a 
steamer rug over the dead man, 
and made a brief report to Vance 
and Markham. 

"There's nothing to indicate a vio- 
lent struggle, if that's what you're 
hoping for. But there's a slight 
abrasion on the bridge of the nose, 
as if his glasses had been jerked 
off; and there's a slight bump on 
the left side of his head, over the 
ear, which may have been caused 
by a blow of some kind, though the 
skin hasn't been broken." 

"How, doctor," asked Vance, 
"would the following theory square 
with your findings— that the man 
had been shot elsewhere, had fallen 
to a tiled floor, striking his head 
against it sharply, that his glasses 
had been torn off when the left 
lens came in contact with the floor, 
and that he was carried out here 
to the chair, and the glasses re- 
placed on his nose?" 

Doremus pursed his lips and in- 
clined his head thoughtfully. 
"That would be a very reasonable

the hand. 

He made a cursory examination 
of the limp figura, scrutinized the 
bullet hole, tested the arms and 
legs for rigor mortis, and then 
swung about to face the rest of us. 

"Well, what about it?" he asked,

and need excitement; and I'm going 
to Madison Square Garden." 

He made out an order for the re- 
moval of the body, readjusted his 
hat, waved a friendly good-by which 
included all of us, and disappeared 
swiftly through the door into the 

Vance led the way into the study, 
and the rest of us followed him. We 
were barely seated- when Captain 

Dubois came in and reported that 
there were no finger-prints on any of 
the objects Vance had enumerated. 

"Handled with gloves," he finished 
laconically, "or wiped clean." , 

Vance thanked him. "I'm not in 
the least surprised," he added. 

Dubois rejoined Bellamy and 
Quackenbush in the hall, and the 

as well as 
unnecess'ry, to go into details at 
the moment. Our investigation has 
just begun. By the by, doctor, may 
I ask what detained you this after- 
noon?— I gathered from your son 
that you usually return home long 
before this time on Saturdays." 

"Of course, you may," the man 
replied with seeming frankness; but 
there was a startled look in his 
eyes as he gazed at Vance. "I 
had some obscure data to look up 
before I could continue with an ex- 
periment I'm making; and I thought 
today would be an excellent time 
to do it, since I close the 'aboratory 
and let my assistants go on Satur- 
day afternoons." 

"And where were you, doctor," 
Vance went on, "between the time 
you left the laboratory and the time 
of your arrival here?" 

"To be quite specific," Professor 
Garden answered, "I left the uni- 
versity at about two and went to the 
public library where I remained 
until half an hour ago. Then I took 
a cab and came directly home." 

"You went to the library alone'" 
asked Vance. 

"Naturally I went alone," the pro- 
fessor answered tartly. "I don't 
take assistants with me when I 
have research work to do." 

"My dear doctor!" said Vance 
placatingly. "A serious crime has 
been committed in your home, and 
it is essential that we know— as a 
matter of routine— the whereabouts 
of the various persons in any way 
connected with the unfortunate situ- 
"I see what you mean." 
"I am glad you appreciate our 
difficulties," Vance said, "and I 
trust you will be equally consid- 
erate when I ask you just what was 
the relationship between you and 
your nephew?" 

The man turned slowly and leaned 
against the broad sill. 

"We were very close," he an- 
swered without hesitation or resent- 
ment. "Both my wife and 1 have 
regarded Woode almost as a son, 
since his parents died. He was not 
a strong person morally, and he 
needed both spiritual and material 
assistance. Perhaps because of this 
fundamental weakness in his na- 
ture, we have been more lenient 
with him than with our own son." 

The nurse discovered it and report 

ed it to Sneed who called up the 

telephone company." 
"It's not of any importance," the 

professor returned with a lacka- 
daisical, gesture of his hand. "It's 

a convenience, however, and saves 

many trips up and down the stairs." 
"We may as well let the man 

attend to it, since he's here. It 

won't disturb js." Vance stood up. 

'"And I say, doctor, would you mind 

joining the others downstairs? We'll 

be down presently, too." 
The professor inclined his head in 

silent acquiescence and, without a 

word, went from the room. 

Presently a tall, pale, youthful 
man appeared at the door to the 
study. He carried a small black 
tool kit. 

"I was sent here to look over a 
buzzer," he announced with surly 
indifference. "I didn't find the trou- 
ble downstairs." 

"Maybe the difficult is at this 
end," suggested Vance. "There's 
the buzzer behind the desk." 

The man went over to it, opened 
his case of tools and, taking out a 
flashlight and a small screw-driver, 
removed the outer shell of the box. 
Fingering the connecting wires for a 
moment, he looked up at Vance with 
an expression of contempt. 

"You -can't expect the buzzer to 
work when the wires ain't connect- 
ed," he commented. 

Vance became suddenly interest- 
ed. Adjusting his monocle, he knelt 
down and looked at the box. 

"They're both disconnected— eh, 
what?" he remarked. 

"Sure they are," the man grum- 
bled. "And it don't look to me 
like they worked themselves loose, 

"You think they were deliberately I jealous. He's madly in love "with

ly into the garden. He raised a 
warning hand to us to keep back out 
of sight. 

"Deuced queer," he said tensely. 
"That gate in the far end of the 
fence is slowly opening . . Oh, my 
aunt!" And he swung swiftly into 
the passageway leading to the gar- 
den, beckoning to us to follow. 

Vance ran past the covered body 
of Swift on the settee, and crossed 
to the garden gate. As he reached 
it he was confronted by the haughty 
and majestic figure of Madge Weath- 
erby. Evidently her intention was 
to step into the garden, but she 
drew back abruptly when she saw 
us. Our presence^ however, seemed 
neither to surprise nor to embarrass 

"Charmin' of you to come up. 
Miss Weatherby," said Vance. "But 
I gave orders that everyone was to 
remain downstairs." 

"I had a right to come here!" 
she returned, drawing herself up 
with almost regal dignity. 

"Ah!" murmured Vance. "Yes, of 
course. It might be, don't y' know. 
But would you mind explainin'?" 

"Not at all. I wished to ascertain 
if he could have done it." 

"And who," asked Vance, "is this 
mysterious 'he'?" 

"Who?" she repeated, throwing 
her head back sarcastically. "Why, 
Cecil Kroon!" 

Vance's eyelids drooped, and be 
studied the woman narrowly for a 
brief moment. Then he said lightly: 
"Most interestin'. But let that 
wait a moment. How did you get up 

"That was very simple. I pre- 
tended to be faint and told your min- 
ion I was going into the butler's 
pantry to get a drink of water. 
I went out through the pantry 
door into the public hallway, came 
up the main stairs, and out on this 

"But how did you know that you 
could reach the garden by this 

"I didn't know." She smiled enig- 
matically. "I was merely recon- 
noitering. I was anxious to prove 
to myself that Cecil Kroon could 
have shot poor Woody." 

"And are you satisfied that he 
could have?" asked Vance quietly. 

"Oh, yes," the woman replied 
with. bitterness. - "Beyond a doubt. 
I've known for a long time that 
Cecil would kill him sooner or later. 
And I was quite certain when you 
said that Woody had been murdered 
that Cecil had done it. But I did not 
understand how he could have got- 
ten up here, after leaving us this 
afternoon. So I endeavored to And 

"And why, may I ask," said 
Vance, "would Mr. Kroon desire to 
dispose of Swift?" 

The woman clasped her hands the- 
atrically against her breast.

Vance nodded with understanding. 

"That being the case, I presume 
that you and Mrs. Garden have pro- 
vided for young Swift in your wills." 

"That is true," Professor Gar- 
den answered after a slight pause. 
"We have, as 

disconnected?" asked Vance, 

"Well, it looks that way." The 
man was busy reconnecting the 
wires. "Both screws are loose, and 
the wires aren't bent— they look like 
they been pulled out." 

"That's most interestin'." Vance 
stood up, and returned the monocle 
to his pocket meditatively. "It might 
be, of course. But I can't see why 
anyone should have done it .... .. Sor- 
ry for your trouble." 

"Oh, that's all in the day's work," 
the man muttered, readjusting the 
cover of the box. "I wish all my 
jobs were as easy as this one." Aft- 
er a few moments he stood up. 
"Let's see if the buzzer will work 
now. Any one downstairs who'll

"I'll take care of that," Heath in- 

me. He has tortured me with his 
attentions ..." One of her hands 
went to her forehead in a gesture of 
desperation. "There has been noth- 
ing I could do. And when he learned 
that I cared for Woody, he became 
desperate. He threatened me."

ther .the sympathy her pompous re-

which I knew he felt.

I. remember as if it were yesterday 
my older brother, John, who was 
known as the "sugar man," when it 
came to making sugar, saying, as he 
drew on his great suooer Doots, "It 
looks like sugar weather today." 

Sugar weather is that period In 
Spring when the sun shines bravely 
in the day time and the frost is in 
t^e air at night. The colder the 
night and the warmer the day, the 
better the sap will flow. 

Sixty years ago, that isn't so long 
just breadth, as time is measured 
and yet, my brother made his own 
wooden troughs to hold the sap, af- 
ter it run through spiles made out of 
long jointed alders, which were 
driven into seven-eights inch augor 
holes, two inches long, bored into 
the trees. Even the sled used in 
hauling, was made with his own 

hands. .-. __ '. '- 

Invention was asleep in those day.* 
and labor saving devices were scarce 
and these crude methods of saving 
sap were the plan used toy owners of 
all large sugar camps. 

Many plantations consisted of sev- 
eral hundred trees and the amount 
of sap run per day depended on the 
weather. We would get ten cents 
per pound for candy and near one 
dollar per gallon for the finished 
syrup. The furnace, was located a- 
bout one-half mile, in a very low 
place, in the woods, on the back o' 
our farm. The sap was kept boiling 
day and night, and took a barrel cf 
sap to make a gallon of syrup, or 
about 11 pounds. 

If you have never spent a night in 
a sugar shack, you have missed a 
part of paradice. Generally there 
was a hired man who would tell us 
boys, great stories, about bears, cat- 
amounts and Indians, and as they 
were unblushing, you know our par- 
adice was spelled with a capital P 
Those were the days, when I believ- 
ed everything they told me, as I lay 
back in this shack, waiting for egg? 
I to boil in syrup, munching on a 
chicken leg, then kicking roasting 
potatoes out of the ashes. 

I can hear yet the sound of the 
wind as its whistled through the 
trees overhead and the crackling of 
the roaring furnace fires. 

I am often asked why I am bow- 
legged, well t was this way— you 
older folks remember those old wood- 
en buckets merchants used for 
Christmas candy, well we bought 
every one we could procure and they 
held about five gallons. At midnignt 
we would make the rounds, to see 
if the sap was running over and 
keep the buckets level. I always 
helped carry them, two at a time, a 
distance of a half mile, and being 
only twelve years of age, the weight 
sprang my legs. In those days peo- 
ple didn't pay any attention to 
curves, except the rainbow, and once 
they set there wasn't any way but 
let them curve. This, was in a way 
an advantage, for I was always call- 
ed on at "pig ringing" time to help 
hold them, and when I got a pig by 
each ear, and clamped them "bow | lustrated picture of the office of

May we urge everyone in the com- 
munity to attend church somewhere 
every Lord's day. A churchless life 
is like a churchless town. Anything 
but satisfactory. You wouldn't want 
to live in a community devoid of 
churches, but what are you doing to 
contribute to their welfare? ' You 
need your church— your church 
needs you. Make church attendance 
a habit. 

We invite you to worship with us 
Don't allow your pew to be empty.

Formerly Miss Mattie Vanice of 
Warsaw, Ky. Years Ago 

Mrs. Mattie Snodgrass, age 79, 
died at her heme in Botell, Wash.. 
Jan. 18th. She was the daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Vanice, deceased 
who resided in Warsaw, Ky., many 
years ago. All her life she was 
identified with educational work and 
previous to her death was Superin- 
tendent of Public Instruction in the 
county in which she lived. She is 
survived by four brothers, Whit 
Vanice, Cincinnati, O., Don E. Van- 
ice, Washington, D. C, Vivian and 
Victor Vanice, San Diego, Calif., and 
one sister, Mrs. Ruth Ray, Louisville 
Ky. She was a splendid woman and 
had many friends. 


Saturday night at 8 o'clock, Don- 
old Pearcy, age 27, Cincinnati, Ohio. 
and Miss Helen Sparrow, 24, of i reconditioning 

Walton, were unitgd In the holy 
bonds of wedlock at the home of 
Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Dickerson on 
North Main street, by the Rev. D. 
E. Bedinger of Walton. 

The attendants were Miss Myrtle 
Osborn, Eugene Sparrow, and Mr. 
and Mrs. Harold Dickerson. 

After a short wedding trip to 
Detroit, Mich, and Canada, they re- 
turned! to Cincinnati, where they 
will make their home. 

Mrs. Pearcy is the daughter of 
Grover Sparrow of near Union, but 
was reared by Mr. and Mrs. Dicker- 
son. Mr. Pearcy is a native of Ind. 

A small group of relatives and fri- 
ends were present at the wedding. 

It was pointed out by Robert 
Humphreys, Commissioner of High- 
ways of Kentucky, that Louisville 
Kentucky's only city of the first 
class, and all of the second class 
cities in the state, with the excep- 
tion of Lexington, were directly in 
the path of the flood and that dur- 
ing the period of inundation the rev- 
enue for gasoline tax fell sharply. It 
was estimated that no less than 60% 
of all automobiles owned in the en- 
tire state were in the flooded area, 
which besides Louisville, included 
Ashland, Maysville, Covington, New-, 
port, Paducah and Frankfort. 

Such a loss of revenue, even 
though it be only for a few days, 
combined with the loss of machinery 
and the dire necessity of repairing 
the state maintained arterial high- 
ways, it can readily be seen that the 
years program will necessarily have 
to be cuhtailed to a great extent. 

The loss of machinery may be only 
temporary, however, a large number 
of heavy and important pieces were 
either working or- stored in the 
flooded area. These pieces will have 
to be either replaced or recondition- 
ed before going into active service 
again. The larger and heavier 
trucks, especially those with high 
wheels, did yoeman's work during the 
flood, laboring under all sorts of con- 
ditions and without the care that is 
usually given them. These will need 

their home below town. It required save them from the flames.

The Highway Department trucks 
not only served the Highway De- 
partment during the flood but were 
assigned to all of the Departments 
activity in the relief work, carrying 
food, equipment, refugees, going over 
streets and highways that were torn 
and uprooted by flood water. The 
loss of a group of these would be 
deeply felt in the reconstruction. 

These with other conditions that 
have arisen will necessarily curtail 
the states program.

Your Child's Future? 

The biggest job you have ever had, par- 
ents,— -that of caring for your children- 
is safeguarding their health so that their 
future happiness and success may be 

ie as- 

Nothing is more important to them than 
their eyes. No child is healthy without 
healthy eyes. No child can achieve suc- 
cess without good vision. 

There's only one way to tell whether or 
not your children's vision is normal- 
have their eyes examined. Do it now.

Mrs. Helen Petty and daughter of 
Covington, who have been spending 
the past two weeks with Mr. and 
Mrs. J. T. Stone, have returned 

St. Petersburg, Fla., 

February 1, 1937. 
To the Editor of Walton Advertiser: 
For the greater part of my life, 
observing the rapid increase of our I j 10me . 

population, I have felt the day was Tne many friends of Mr. and Mrs 
not far distant when it will be nee- Ed Hopperton extend sympathy tc

point, for the nation to put to its use ^id Lee. who passed away at the 
its potential water power. The arid childrens Hospital in Cincinnati 
condition of the west has stimulated lr01n double pneumonia. Donald 
an initiative in such a move, irriga- , was b 0rn j UU e 14, 1928 and was e 
tion being the basic motive, allow- . 1)U pji i n Mrs. Landrum's room. Fun- 
irig an added advantage of provid- : t>ra j services were held at the Christ - 
Ing in conjuction therewith the gen-. ian church, with Rev. A. K. John- 
eration of electrical power to meet ; son officiating. Besides his parents 
such demands as may arise within j Donald is surviver by a half-sister 

the territory. 

The government owns and controls 
the streams and it seems logical that 
for the general welfare such devel- | 
opments should be by, through and 
under the control of the United 
States government. Such utilities j 
as have already been developed un- 
der private enterprise should be 
taken over by the government at a 
fair compensation. It is not a fair 
deal for the government to give 
grants for such to private corpora- 
tions and then later enier the field 
in competition as is being done in 
the Ter.r.essee valley. 

It seems that, iroin the intense 
sufferings of humanity along the 
flooded sections of the Ohio river 
valley with the immense loss of 
property, sweeping its relentless vol- 
ume of death and destruction on to 
the fertile valley of the Mississippi 
river, there should arise a stimulus 
for a united urge and effort, through 
the representatives 
of these territories to elicit an in- 
terest in their fellow congressmen 
in an instant move looking to a con- 
servation of the flood waters of the 
Ohio river valley. It would afford 
a means for the generation of elec- 
trical power for the general welfare 
of all the territory drained by the 
entire Ohio river valley, bringing in 
, a handsome interest on the invest- 
ment. Now is the opportune time 
Nothing is to be gained by delay 
Such a condition as now prevails will 
be repeated time and time again as 
the years roll by. Then why wait? 
The Ohio river pours more water 
into the Mississippi river than any 
other one of its tributaries. A flood 
control , of the Ohio river would go 
far towards solving the problem of 
flood control along the Lower Mis- 
sissippi valley. It is the excessive 
flood waters that now give so much 
trouble and loss along the Mississip- 
pi. A relief from the Ohio's flow- 
would go far towards, if not quite 
relieve the excess. 

Of course the acuteness of loss in 
the flooded territory is felt by those 
within the area, but in a degree, it 
is a loss to the nation as a whole 
Any loss within a nation, let is be 
private or otherwise, is a loss to the 
economic progress of the country at 
large. But even if that be not true 
such a move from a humanitarian 
standpoint should meet with general 
approval and support. It, too, should 
receive general aid even from a sel- 
fish standpoint in that of the gen- 
eral welfare of all within the terri- 
tory because of the light and power 
made available. 

Such a move can not meet with 
consumption within one year, but 
would be a project of years, as it 
bears many phases in association 
The Mississippe valley people, un- 
less they stand in their own light 
should join in the move heart and 
soul. They should see it as a move 
towards a correction of the main 
source of their trouble by conserving 
the waters of the Ohio river valley. 
It seems the government should see 
the logic in stopping further ex- 
penditures along the Mississippi and 
apply the money towards controlling 
the main source of the cause.

Farm Notes 

H. R. FORKNER, County Agent 
54 Pounds of Fat on Official Test 

of Beech Grove Dairy Farm ! 

An outstanding record of perform- ' 
ance of 54 pounds of butterfat per 
cow was accomplished by Kite and 
Purdy, Beech Grove Dairy Farm, ac- 1 
cording to David Colville, Assistant 
County Agent. 

There were 12 cows In the herd ) 
with' only 9 in lactation. Of these ' 
9 cows 4 averaged approximately 54 
pounds of butterfat last month on ! 
official test. 

This enviable record was made by 
rigid culling of cows and by a good 
feed and management program. A 
strict breeding program has been 
carried on for a number of years and 
only by feeding balanced rations 
consisting of grain and concentrates 
and a good quality clover hay were 
these results obtained. 

When to Locate Tobacco Seed 

The County Agent's office each 
year receives many requests where to 
locate various varieties of tobacco 
seed. Through cooperation of Prof 
E. J. Kinney of the college, the fol- 
lowing list of tobacco seed producers 
has been prepared. 

Many of the varieties of White 
Burley tobacco grown in Kentucky 
at the present time are of the stand- 
ing-up type. These varieties are all 
very similar in appearance and In i 
other characteristics. They all pro- 
duce about the same quality of leaf I 
Some of the varieties, as noted, have | 
considerable resistance to black root j 
rot, and the No. 5 and No. 16 White 
Burley produced by the Experiment 
Station are almost immune to black ' 
root rot. Following is a list of seed ',

sistant to root rot.

killed instantly Sunday, when struck

Advertised For Lost House 

Perry Vogt lived in Bromley, Ky. 
previous to the flood. When the 
flood reached his home it floated off 
on the high crest. Hoping some 
one would catch his home somewhere 
down the Ohio river, he advertised 
in the columns of a Cincinnati daily 
paper, giving a description of the 
building. We sincerely hope he finds 
his property. Mr. and) Mrs. Vogt 
lived on the Stephenson Mill road 
near Walton, a few years ago. 

Napoleon W. Carpenter 


You meet him on the house-top, 
you meet him on the street; along 
each winding pathway you hear his 
princely feet. You find him in the 
cottage, in hovel, hut and/ hall; you 
hear his voice forever — the man who 
knows it all. And would you talk 
of music, if that is near yaur heart? 
Or would you, as a critic, discuss 
an ancient art? A voice will inter- 
rupt you and o'er you cast a pall— 
the voice of that wise being— the 
man who knows it all. Perhaps you 
may have journeyed leagues away 
from home, have seen the sights of 
Athens, the seven hills of Rome; 
don't tell your strange adventures 
when neighbors on you call, for 
there will be among them the man 
who knows it all. And would you 
tell a story, as pommery you quaff, 
a little pointed anecdote to make 
your comrads laugh? Then shun 
the dark-browed stranger who leans 
against the wall, he is the sour- 
souled villian— the man who knows 
it all. When at the realm that 
smoulders, where Satan broods in 
ire, we hand our parquet tickets to 
plunge into the fire; above the wails 
of sorrow we'll hear one frantic call, 
the fate of that poor sinner — the 
man who knows it all.— Exchange

Thirty-One Houses Swept Away 

From Sugar Creek to Warsaw 

On Kentucky Side of River 

A representative of the Advertiser 
made a trip down to Warsaw, Ky. 
Saturday, From Sugar Creek to 
Warsaw it was reported thirty -one 
structures, mostly residences, were 
carried away in the recent flood. But 
two houses remain on the river side 
of Federal Highway 42, between 
Sugar Creek and Stearmans Branch. 
One is a log house with concrete base 
and an old frame, sitting askew off ' 
foundation. The pretty lunch room ] 
and service station owned and oper- 
ated by Mrs. Clara Braoht, was 
completely obliterated with the ex- 
ception of the wreck of two gaso- 
line pumps. Not a vistage left but 
the foundation. It is stated when 
Mrs. Bracht purchased this stand 
she expended $3,500 in improvements 
and it was one of the most up-to- 
date lunch rooms on this highway 
She was prostrated when she viewed 
the wreck of her former home. It 
was not learned whether she would 
rebuild or not. 

At Rocky Branch, some distance 
below the pretty home built by L. W 
Moore, but now owned and occupied 
by Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Hon, was 
swept away. The concrete highway 
was badly damaged just east of 
Darling Beau's, when the concrete 
caved away for' a short distance but 
has since been repaired. The fill at 
Stearman's Branch was damaged by 
the ihight water, but this, too, has 
been repaired. 

In the lower section of Warsaw, 
bordering the Ohio, only three frame 
houses were left and they were twist- 
ed on their foundations. An old 
two-story brick on Main Cross st. 
the nearest to the river, was demol- 
ished. The two-story brick on the 
corner withstood the flood. The 
Argonne Hotel was submerged to the 
second floor. The slaughter house 
and stable, property of Louis Gutt- 
ing, meat merchant, were both swept 
away. Mr. Gutting said the slaugh- 
ter house was anchored, but the Hon 
house from Rocky Branch, in its 
downward course in the flood, struck 
it, carrying both the stable and 
slaughter house away. Mr. Gutting 
stated that his loss was the heaviest 
in Warsaw, as the buildings contain- 
ed equipment and feedstuff. 

Arrasmith's Filling Station at 
Sugar Creek was submerged and a 
number of buildings washed away. 
The water completely surrounded 
Warsaw, east, west and south sides 
The water on the Warsaw-Sparta 
highway reached from the old Gra- 
ves property to the Gip Beall farm 
but it did not get in the house on 
the property. In 1884 the water 
lacked 6 feet of covering the pike. 
A number of John boats were made 
at the furniture factory, equipped 
with oars to help the unfortunates 
in the flooded district in the lower 
end of town near the river.

This Is Exclusive of Utilities. 

This Estimate Is Made By 

Ky. Real Estate Board 

Flood damage to real estate, ex- 
clusive of that of public utility com- 
panies, is estimated at $4,500,000 ap- 
proximately, by the Northern Ken- 
tucky Real Estate Board. 

However, a committee composed of 
Orville Noel, William Ammerman 
Sidney Taylor and James Guniulg 
will check up on preliminary ap- 
praisals of damages and losses. 

The result of the survey cannot 
be accurately given at present as

ONE $50,000 LOSS 
V. P. Kerns of Walton, president 
and general manager of the Tri- 
State Loose Leaf Tobacco Ware-

the flood, estimates loss at $50,000. 
This loss is sustained by the stock-

anyone as the stock is held by differ- 
ent individuals in small lots.

our young people can be moulded 
by the "rod of love." 

If it is in a boy or girl to trod the 
wayward path, they will anyway— 
but they will be few compared to the 
vast numbers who will grow up in- 
to "bright and shining lights," If 
parents will only win their confi- 
dence and trust. 

Teach your child not to be afraid. 
Many a young girl has gone down a 
ladder to meet some worthless fel- 
low, to marry and spend a miser- 
able life thereafter. Where, if she 
could have had her friends at home 
where parents took part, and were 
interested in her innocent amuse- 
ments, life would have been differ- 
ent for her. 

Young folks grow tired of too 
much restraint, just as of yore, when 
they sat by grandmothers side lis- 
tening to her quaint stories of the 
romance of the roses, when for- 
tunes were told by poping of the 
petals. I can hear my sisters now a.= 
they used to say, "Make my leaf 

There has always been more goo.i 
than evil in the world, so elt us be

Doctor told his patient one time 
that pessimism, is a disease. And 
this saying came from a man who 
had lost his health, but who always 
carried sunshine into thousands of 

"Let us gather up the sunbeams, 
Lying all along our path,

in the home. I bought a cheap vio- 
lin, but it disappeared while I was 
at school, and no one ever knew 
what became of it. I was reared in 
an atmosphere of "Don'ts" — "don't" 
do this, and "don't" do that. Those 
days young folks were not allowed 
to go swimming or skating on Sun- 
day. Everyone, young and old, was 
expelled from the church for danc- 
i ing. We were taught that it was 
I sinful to dance, and eternal death 
would ... be our punishment. I be- 
| lieved it was so myself, because I 
was taught .that way. Sunday was 
[church day and we were required to 
] attend each service. 

I often wondered why "Heaven" 

'was so far away, and "Hell" always 

! so near. I was afraid to do this or 

that, because of that phrase, "God 

will punish you," that I had heard 

S3 much about. 

I was not alone with these mem- 
ories. All my chums were in the 
same boat with me. We boys would 
get together -and talk about these 
things. We were taught how the 
! devil tempted us, and we lived in 
constant dread that we would com- 
| mit an "unpardonable" sin. 

One bright moon light night, one 
of our neighbors gave a party. (If 
I would name the home, many of our 
older generation would readily rec- 
ognize the time and place.) Some 
of us boys decided we would slip 
away and see for ourselves, what 
they did at parties. 

Well, we found the old fiddlers 
sawing away, and such games in 
progress as "Pussy wants a corner," 
"Snap," "Skip-to-my-Lou." and "Sel- 
ling pawns, or Forfeits." Some were 
down on their knees barking like a 
dog, some mewing like a cat, in order 
to entice a smile, and obtain a kiss 
from some pretty girl. 

Then they would dance a set or 
two, and as we stood watching, we 
would point out certain prominent 
ones, and wonder if their parents 
knew they were there. We never 
saw so much fun in our lives, and 
wondered why we had to live by 

Finally I broke the ice, and ven- 
tured inside, and was soon kicking 
around with the music. Then a 
pretty girl stepped up and took hold 
my hand and said, "want to dance?" 
Well, I felt the hot blood rush to my 
face and my heart began skipping 
beats, and to throb, and eventually 
"came to," and I said "I can't 
dance." But they pulled me onto 
the floor, the music started, and I 
was drug through ' that set. My 
knees got weak and I was thinking 
how sinful I was, and of maybe I 
would fall dead. After the set was 
over, I joined the boys and we hur- 
ried home. I thought if I was dy- 
ing—home was the best place for me 
I went to bed and lay awake for 
hours, brooding over, Illusions de-

COL. HORACE FELLY, Auctioneer 


When Harrison was elected presi- 
dent, years ago, the Republicans of 
the county being very much elated 
prepared for a big celebration of the 
event. Many cords of wood were 
hauled into Warsaw by the Republi- 
cans, among wham were Bill Bales 
George Glenn and others. A barrel 
of tar was procured for a bonfire 
Of course a speaker on this occasion 
had to be engaged, and none other, 
than the'celebrated Republican, Jabe 
Craig, better known in those days 
as "Jim-Darter," was procured for 
the momentious occasion. Now Jabe 
was the only Republican in the Craig 
family and he did not mind telling 
every one he talked to about it. Now 
Senator R. B. Brown was just as 
strong against the Republicans as 
Jabe was for them, and Mr. Brown 
or the "King Bee," as Jabe called 
him, had many disputes along po- 
litical lines, although whpn Jabe 
would get real mad at the "King 
Bee," they would make up until a 
similar occasion arose. 

Well, the night of the celebration 
came on and a very large crowd from 
surrounding towns were on hand for 
the event. Jabe was ready with his 
speech he was to make from the 
small portico on the second floor of 
the court house. Most of the crowd 
was "liquered-up" and ready for the 
d d Democrats, and more especi- 
ally the "King Bee." But Mr. Brown 
had, in the meantime, left for Louis- 
ville, but Jabe was not aware of the 

The bonfire was started amid jol- 
lification, noise and "booze." Jabe 
was assisted to the speaker's stand 
and introduced to the crowd, and 
then 'bedlam broke loose. Jabe got 
as far as "Ladies and Gemmen," 
when someone (supposedly a Demo- 
crat) threw a bad egg, and it hit 
Jabe right square in the mouth 
After he could talk Jabe said: "Ah, 
Mr. Bobby Brown, I saw you throw I 

that egg,' you d di little *Kipg 

Bee,' etc., etc." 

It was three weeks before Jabe 
could be convinced that Mr.- Brown 
was not guilty of the egg throwing. 
But it stepped the best speech that 
Jabe "did not make." 

Gold Compared to Sun 

How gold acquired its universal 
esteem no one knows; it has been 
suggested that the ancient Egyp- 
tians, comparing gold to the sun, 
believed the metal to be a giver of 
life like the sun it resembled. 

Gunpowder, the Downfall 

"When my ancestors invented 
gunpowder," said Hi Ho, the sage 
of Chinatown, "they created an evil 
force strong enough to offset all the 
good to be hoped for from the teach- 
ings of Confucius."

Emergency Feed Loans to 

Be Made to Boone fountains 

Emergency feed loans may be ob- 
tained by Boone county farmers 
through Rural Rehabilitation Divis- 
ion, if they are unable to secure 
local credit. 

Funds may be secured through 
Rural Rehabilitation Division, by 
flood stricken farmers or low in- 
come farmers to maintain livestock 
through this crisis, according to 
David Colville, Assistant County 
Agent. These loans are not avail- 
able, however, to farmers who can 
secure credit through local banks or 
other local agencies. 

W. O. Blackburn, Rural Rehabili- 
tation Supervisor, will be in Burl- 
ington, Tuesday and Friday morn- 
ing of each week to receive applica- 
tions for loans. Because of the time 
necessary to approve these applica- 
tions, those farmers in need are urg- 
ed to apply as soon as possible. 

Balanced Agriculture Recom- 
mended by County Leaders 

Boone County Community Pro- 
gram of Work Chairman and county 
project leaders recommended a bet- 
ter agricultural balance between pro- 
duction and soil improvement in the 
county through fewer acres of soil 
depleting crops and larger acreage 
of well managed pasture and legume 
crops. These recommendations were 
made in the second Annual County 
Agricultural planning meeting held 
at Burlington Courthouse on Tues- 
day of last week. 

W. L. Rouse, farm management 
research worker and AAA supervisor 
from the college, met with the lead- 
ers and let in the discussion on what 
long time agricultural farm organi- 
zation should be carried out to make 
most profitable and productive the 
agricultural resource of the county 
The importance of a long time soil 
improvement program is shown by 
the fact that during the past 100 
years cro pland of United States in 
excess of three times the total crop 
land area of Kentucky has been 
destroyed past redemption for pro- 
duction purposes. Detailed plans of 
the county planning program will be 
announced at a later date.

F O It D 


It HAS never occurred before in auto- 
mobile history that 25 million cars of 
one make, bearing one name, have 
been manufactured under one man- 
agement. The 25,000,000th Ford car 
rolled off the Ford Rouge Plant pro- 
duction line on January 18, 1937. 

25 million cars since 1903 . . . more 
than one-third of all the cars ever 
built . . . enough cars to transport the 
entire population of the United States. 

The figures represent a remarkable 
contribution to the social welfare, the 
industrial stability and the general 
progress of our country. 

People respect Ford efficiency. They 
know Ford uses fine materials, the 
best workmanship at good wages, the 
most exact precision measurements. 
They know these things are passed 
along to purchasers in the form of 
extra value. Naturally, they like. to 
do business with such a company. 
That is the only reason it has been 
required to produce 25 million cars. 

Naturally, too, they expect 
more of a Ford car, more this 
year than laat year — more 


each year than the year before. They 
have every right to. The experience 
gained in building 25,000,000 cars en- 
ables Ford to produce today a really 
superb motor car at a really low price 
— with the Beauty, Comfort, Safety 
and Performance of much more ex- 
pensive cars. 

The 1937 Ford V-8 combines ad- 
vanced design, all-steel construction, 
extra body room, and brilliant brakes 
with a choice of two V-type 8-cy Un- 
der engines — the most modern type 
of power-plant on land, sea, or in 
the air. 

The 85-horsepower engine provides 
top performance with unusually good 
economy for its high power. 

The 60-horsepower engine gives 
good performance with the greatest 
gasoline mileage ever built into a Ford 
car — -and wears the lowest Ford price 
tag in years. 

People expect more of a Ford car 

because it's a Ford — and they get 

_ more, for the same reason. It 

is undeniably the quality car 

in the low-price field. 

received $81.20. The total payments 
include $35,677.13 on tobacco, $27,- 
264.41 on general and $19,424.49 on 
soil building practice performance. 

The 1936 payments have not been 
received at the county office to date 
A letter received the first of last week 
stated that due to the fact the co- 
unty was affected by the flood, pay- 
ment should be received in about bwc 
weeks. Because of recent change? 
in the Washington office, check? 
would have otherwise been delayed 
much longer than first stated. 

Not all 1036 payments are expected 
to be reoeived in the first shipment 
due to the delay of some farmers in 
signing their forms. . The county of- 
fice and committees greatly regret" 
the delay in forwarding checks be- 
cause many farmers are expecting tc

Daytime Dresses of Wool 
Lace Latest Style. 

First Engineers 

The engineer on . the first steam 
locomotive in the United States was 
Horatio Allen, who agreed to make 
the trial trip of the "Stourbridge 
Lion," August 8, 1829. The second 
jyas Peter Cooper, builder of the 
"Tom Thumb," op its trial trip on 
the Baltimore & Ohio, August 28, 
1830. The third engineer was Nich- 
plas W. DarreH, who ran the "Best 
Friend of Charleston" oh its trial 
trip, November 2, 1830. 


The daytime dresses of wool lace 
are perhaps the newest note in the 
lace story. For street and tailored 
wear they display the utmost sim- 
plicity, for lace needs no intricacies 
to enhance it. Mostly these chic 
daytime wool-lace frocks have soft- 
ly fitted waistlines and fitted sleeves 
and the flared skirt which is report- 
ed to be in greater favor with smart 
women than the straight skirt. 

The fabrics of thes« dresses are 
most interesting, and they are cer- 
tainly fabrics both in their texture 
and weave, and in their handling 
for design. They are beautiful 
and soft with patternings that mark 
them a product of the lace looms. 
The colors are rich in these pat- 
terned lace fabrics, for you see the 
tones that harmonize with the at- 
mosphere of Indian summer and 
that you want with the first wearing 
of your fall coat. 

For afternoon, the semi-tailored 
silhouette continues, but in more 
formal laces. Still being in the 
fabric family, these are sometimes 
closely woven in a combination of 
fiber and metal thread. Here the 
well known lace pattern dften dis- 
appears, and you have a shimmer- 
ing, lacy fabric that has body and 
firmness. One of the more effective 
uses of these laces for afternoon 
fashions is the tunic dress, the 
skirt of either velvet or satin, or 
heavy silk crepe.

than 5,500. Of these 5,000 are sit-

of the task of combatting the flood 
waters of the Ohio and Mississippi 
rivers, strengthening the levees, 
evacuating refugees from danger

Mastitis Spreading 

According to recognized authori- 
ties, 52 per cent of all the cows in 
Germany have mastitis, about 40 
per cent of Great Britain's cows are 
infected, and 48 per cent, or nearly 
one out of every two cows in Amer- 
ica, are infected with this disease. 
Dairymen no longer consider masti- 
tis, or garget, a necessary evil, but 
are learning to diagnose the disease 
and are taking every precaution to 
prevent its spread. The organism 
which causes garget destroys the 
milk-producing tissue of the udder 
and lowers the average butterfat 
and milk production about 22 per 
cent. Considering that every other 
cow in the average dairy herd has 
garget, that 22 per cent loss in pro- 
duction from each infected cow 
means an 11 per cent loss on the 
herd as a whole. 

Cost of Keeping Horse 

A horse at medium work will re- 
quire about one pound of hay and 
one pound of grain for each 100 
pounds body weight. On this basis 
if figured on a 365-day feeding basis 
for a 1,200-pound horse with no 
allowance for pasture would require 
about three tons of hay and two and 
one-half tons of grain, such as equal 
parts com and oats. Some allow- 
ance is made for wastage for hay. 
With hay at $10 per ton and grain 
at $30 per ton the total year's feed 
cost would be $105.— Rural New-

three poultry parasites, chief of 
which are tapeworms and round 

Poultry losses cost Illinois farm- 
ers approximately $4,0C0,00O annual- 
ly. And 20 per cent of the annual 
poultry mortality, as judged by au- 
topsy findings, is caused by tape- 
worms which spend a part of their 
life cycle in such intermediate hosts 
as grasshoppers, houscflies, stable- 
flies, dung beetles, ground beetles, 
earthworms, snails, slugs, ants and 

It has also been found that poul- 
try becomes infested with round- 
worm parasites by eating grass- 
hoppers, earthworms, cockroaches, 
snails, pill bugs, watertlcas and dung 
beetles. However, few parasites are 
able to develop directly without 
spending a part of their life within 
an intermediate host. 

While proper sanitary measures 
will not prevent the grasshopper 
menace, good poultry management 
will go far toward the control. of 
parasites with both direct and in- 
direct life histories. 

Poultry owners will find that it 
pays to have clean, well constructed 
houses and equipment, clean yards 
and ranges, clean, well balanced 
feed and water. It is also important 
to dispose of diseased fowls and 
see that houses, troughs and water- 
ing utensils are kept clean. These 
measures combined with any other 
steps that will destroy intermediate 
hosts or prevent their access to farm 
flocks will cut down the heavy an- 
nual poultry loss and raise egg and 
meat production. 

Poultryman Advises How 
to Treat Colds in Birds 

To get rid of colds that have 
started in a poultry flock tho first 
thing to do is to isolate all birds 
showing signs of a cold, states a 
North Carolina State college expert. 
As this trouble is usually caused 
by drafts and dampness together 
with poor ventilation, poor feeding, 
and overcrowding, the next thing 
is to look for and eliminate the 

Check carefully on the feeding 
schedule and give the flock Epsom 
salts at the rate of one-half pound 
to each three gallons of water. 
Keep a good germicide in the drink- 
ing water while there is evidence 
of the trouble. The house and uten- 
sils should also be disinfected. 
Where the trouble is well established 
it is not economical to treat the in- 
dividuals and these should be de- 
stroyed. Where commercial sprays 
for colds are used the directions 
should be carefully followed. | 

Poultry Notes 

The principal cause of blindness 
in hens is worms. 

Be sure to feed the old hens 
plenty during their molt. 

• • • 

A new British machine tests and 

grades 3,000 eggs an hour. 

• • » 

New York ranks thirty - third 
among the states in turkey produc- 
tion. . 

• • • 

Young turkeys, or poults, require j 
more attention than nearly any otb- I 
er fowl. 

• • • 

It takes from 4 to 12 weeks to 
tell whether a baby chick is male 
or female. 

• • * 

The average egg production of | 
hens in the United States in 1934 
was 76.7 eggs. 

• • • 

The first indication oZ a hen quit- 
ting is a comb starting to dry up 
and old feathers easily pulled out 

• • • 

Nevada's poultry and egg co-op- 
eratives report business increased 
.366 per cent during the 1935-36 mar- 

keting season. 

• • • 

Putting^all the pullets into the 
same laying house at%ie same time 
is not always a good practice for 
the poultryman. 

» • • 

A Leghorn hen in Japan is cred- 
ited with a world record in egg- 
laying. According to reports this 
hen allowed herself only four holi- 
days and shelled out 361 eggs in 
365 days. 

The bureau of animal industry 
says that it costs the average mid- 
western poultry plant 2% cents a 
pound to dress poultry. This cost 
depends partly on the volume of 
the business done. 

• •» • 

When turkeys eat feathers the 
vice may be controlled by feeding 
clover, alfalfa, or soybean hay. A 
supply of fibrous grains, such as 
oats, barley and buckwheat, helps 
to curb the habit. 

Orange Trees Guarded 

Americans have seen the orange 
trees which grow In the palace gar- 
dens at Versailles without being 
•ware of their history or the pains- 
taking care with which they are 
preserved, there are approximately 
1,200 of the trees, each growing in 
its own wooden pot. Many of them 
are said to date back to the time of 
Louis XIV. They are guarded with 
the most zealous care. At the first 
sign of cold they are all taken in- 
doors. Twice a year they receive 
a special diet of ox blood and water. 
At regular intervals the specially 
matured loam in which they grow 
is changed completely. 

Age of Veda Calculated 
A meteorologist believes that In- 
dia's famous religious work, the 
Rig Veda, was composed 2000 to 
5000 B. C, or earlier, judging by 
many references to climate. 

All the Virtues 
Character is a unity, and all the 
virtues must advance together to 
make the perfect man.

Echoes of the Flood 

Gallatin Co., Ky., 
Feb. 8, 1937. 
The Walton Advertiser: 

For the benefit of people Who have 
lost their homes in this flood and 
wish to rebuild them I will give the 
history of reection of two buildings 
here opposite Patriot, Ind., which 
have withstood all floods. 

A one and a half story frame six- 
room residence was built about 55 
years ago. The foundation was 
made of stone and mortar, starting 
about two feet under ground and 
abou^ two feet above. At each cor- 
ner and about every six feet apart 
there was a 1-inch iron rod with a 
stirup at the bottom built in the 
foundation, the rod coming through 
a 6x8 fott sill far enough for a large 
washer and tap to be securely fas- 
tened on it. The house has a double 
brick chimney in center. It is built 
on a 53 foot flood line, on an exposed 
lot from the river and creek. It 
stood through the 1884 flood which 
reached the second row of shingles 
on the roof and has stood through 
all of the floods since. The past 
flood was about one foot or more 
over the top of the house. It was 
built by an honest carpenter of sec- 
ond hand material for frame work 
It has been occupied after each 
flood, after little repairs, and it will 
continue to be occupied after this 

The other building, a frame, 20x40 
one story store building, I had built 
about 1888 with a two foot under- 
ground foundation and 3 feet above

THURSDAY, FEB. 18, 1937 



CHAPTER I— Philo Vance, famous de. 
tective, and John F. X. Markham. dls- 
trlct attorney for New York county are 
dining in Vance's apartment when j 
Vance receives an anonymous telephone ■ 
message Informing him of a "disturbing 
psychological tension at Professor Ephri- i 
am Garden* apartment" advising that 
he read up on radio active sodium, con- 
sult- a passage in the Aeneid and coun- '■ 
seling that "Equanimity is essential." 
Professor Garden is famous In chemical ! 
research. The message, decoded by 
Vance, reminds him that Professor Gar- 
den's son Floyd and his puny cousin. 
Woode Swift, are addicted to horse-rac- 
ing. Vance says that "Equanimity" Is 
a horse running next day in the River- 
mont handicap. Vance is convinced that 
the message was sent by Dr. Siefert, 
the Garden's family physician. He ar- 
ranges to have lunch next day at the 
Gardens' penthouse. 

CHAPTER II.— Vance Is greeted by 
Floyd Garden and meets Lowe Hammle. 
an elderly follower of horse racing. 
Floyd expresses concern over Swift's 
queer actions. Gathered around an elab- 
orate loud speaker service, listening to 
the racing are Cecil Kroon, Madge 
Weatherby and Zalia Graem; who bet 
varying amounts on the race. There ii 
tension under the surface gaiety. Zalia 
and Swift are not on speaking terms. 
Mrs. Garden, supposedly ill. comes 
downstairs and places a $100 bet on a 

CHAPTER m.— Swift, recklessly bets 
$10,000 on "Equanimity" and goes to the 
roof garden to hear the results. Floyd 
follows Swift, remaining away several 
minutes. Kroon leaves to keep an ap- 
pointment before the race starts. Zalia 
answers a phone call in the den. Miss 
Beeton, a nurse, and Vance bet on 
"Azure Star." Soon after the announce- 
ment that "Azure Star" wins, the guests 
hear a shot. Vance finds Swift dead, 
shot through the head with a revolver 
nearby. He says Swift has been mur- 
dered. After calling the police, he finds 
the door of a vault ajar. 

CHAPTER IV.— Kroon returns and Is 
sharply questioned by Vance, who finds 
he had not left the building. Vance or- 
ders Miss Beeton to guard the stairway 
and prevent Mrs. Garden and Zalia 
from viewing Swift's body. Floyd Gar- 
den admits the revolver belongs to Ins 

CHAPTER V.— Further questioning bv 
Vance reveals that the revolver had been 
found recently by Zalia in the presence 
of the other guests. Floyd hints that 
Swift bet so recklessly because of Zalia. 
Markham, Sergeant Heath and two de- 
tectives arrive. 

CHAPTER ' VI.— Markham and Ser- 
geant Heath scorn the murder theory, 
until Vance says that In the vault ha 
found a piece of lens missing from 
Swift's glasses. Indicating he was killed 
there and dragged away. 

CHAPTER VII.— Madge Weatherby 
appears in the garden through a gate. 
Confronted by Vance, she declares dra- 
matically that she suspects Kroon. be- 
cause he had threatened her when he 
learned she cared for Swift. 

*To murder, tor instance?" 
Hammle frowned. "Now, murder 
is a very, very serious business. 
But, Mr. Vance, you can take it 
from me, in all solemnity, I 
wouldn't put even murder past any 
one of those present today. No 
by Gad!" 

"That's an amazin" indictment," 
muttered Vance; "but I'm glad to 
have your opinion and we'll consid- 
er it ... By the by, didn't you no- 
tice anything irregular in Garden*! 
placing Swift's large bet on Equa- 
nimity at the last minute?" 

Hammle's countenance went 
qtiickly blank. Then, unable to with- 
stand the direct scrutiny of Vance's 
cold gaze, he puckered up his mouth 
into a shrewd smile. 

"Why deny it?" he chuckled. 
"The laying of that bet was not 
only irregular— it was damned near 
impossible. I don't know a book- 
maker in New York who would take 
such an amount when there was not 
even enough time to throw some 
'come-back money' into the totaliza- 
Vance leaned forward. 
"That might easily have had 
some bearing on the situation here 
this afternoon, and I'd like very 
much to know why you didn't men- 
tion it." 

For a brief moment the man 
seemed flustered; but almost im- 
mediately he settled back in his 
chair with a complacent 'look, and 
extended his hands, palms up. 

"Why should I become involved?" 
he asked with cynical suavity. 

"That's one way of looking at 
it," Vance drawled. "And it has 
its points. However . . ."He con- 
templated the tip of his cigarette, 
then asked: "Would your discre- 
tion permit you to comment on Zalia 
Graem?" * 
Hammle sat up with alacrity. 
"Ah!" He nodded his head signif- 
icantly. "That's something to think 
about. There are varied possibili- 
ties in that girl. You may be on 
the right track. A most likely sus- 
pect for the murder. You never 
can tell about women, anyway. 
And, come to think of it, the shoot- 

CHAPTER VHI.-Kroon admits he did 
not leave the building, but entered an 
apartment downstairs to make a finan- 
cial settlement with Stella Freumon. a 
blackmailer. In the den where Zalia 
answered a phone call when the shot 
was heard. Vance finds the wires of the 
buzzer disconnected. He asks Floyd why 
he did not place Swift's bet. 

"My dear Markham! You're too 
flatterin'. Nothing whatever. I'm 
seekin' for something tangible. The 
other gun, for instance. The one 
that went off somewhere when the 
chappie was already dead. It should 
be here or hereabouts ..." He 
turned to Heath. "I say, Sergeant, 
could you and'Snitkin take a look for 
it? Suggested itiner'ry: the roof- 
garden and the flowerbeds, the ter- 
race, the public stairs, the lower 
hallway. Then the apartment prop- 
er. Assumption: any one present 
may have had it. Follow up all the 
known local migrations of everyone 
downstairs. If it's here it'll prob- 
ably be in some tempor'ry hidin'- 
place, awaitin' further disposal." 
Heath grinned. 

"And, Sergeant, before you start 
reconnoiterin', will you fetch 
Hammle. You'll probably find him 
at the bar downstairs." 

Hammle strutted pompously into 
the study and was cursorily pre- 
sented to Markham. 

Vance waved Hammle to a chair 
and studied him a moment with a 
melancholy air. 

The interview was brief and, as it 
turned out, of peculiar significance. 
The significance lay, not so much 
in what Hammle said, as in the re- 
sult of the curiosity which Vance's 
questions aroused in the man. It 
was this curiousity which enabled 
him later to supply Vance with im- 
portant information. 

"It is not our desire to keep you 
here any longer than necess'ry, Mr 
Hammle,"— Vance began the inter- 
view with marked distaste— "but 
it occurred to me to ask you if you 
have any ideas that iriight be helpful 
to us in solving Swift's murder." 

Hammle coughed impressively 
and appeared to N give the matter 
considerable thought. 

"No, I have none," he at length 
admitted. "None whatever. But of 
course one can never tell about 
these things." 

"Of course," Vance agreed. "But 
I thought there might be something 
in the relationships of the various 
people here this afternoon." 

"All I can say," returned Hammle 
carefully weighing his words, "is 
that there were many warring ele- 
ments in the gathering— that is to 
say, many peculiar combinations. 
There was a combination of this 
and that, which might lead 
welt to anything. " 

ing must have taken place during 
the time she was out of the room." 

Vance nodded and waited. 

"But don't think, for a minute," 
Hammle hurried on, "that I am inti- 
mating that she had anything to do 
with Swift's death. Absolutely not! 
But the mention of her name gave 
me pause." 

Vance stood up with a stifled 

"It's quite evident," he said, 
"you're not in the mood to be spe- 
cific. I wasn't looking for generali- 
ties, don't y' know. Consequently I 
may want to have another chat 
with you. Wnene can you be reached 
later, should we need you?" 

"If I am permitted to go now, I 
shall return to Long Island immedi- 
ately," Hammle answered readily, 
glancing speculatively at his watch. 
"Is that all you wish at the mo- 
"That is all. thank you." 
Hammle again referred to his 
watch, hesitated a moment, and 
then left us. 

Vance went to the buzzer, and 
pressed the button. 

"Queer reports on that Graem 

girl." He walked back ttf his chair 

musingly. "The time has come to 

commune with the lady herself." 

Garden appeared at the door. 

"Did you ring for me, Vance?" 

"Yes." Vance nodded. "The 

buzzer is working now. Sorry to 

trouble you, but we would like to 

see Miss Graem. Would you do the 


Garden hesitated, his eyes fixed 
sharply on Vance. He started to 
say something, changed his mind 
and, with a muttered "Right-o," 
swung about and returned down- 

Zalia Graem swaggered into the 
room, her hands in he* jacket pock- 
ets, and surveyed us with breezy 

"Miss Graem,"— Vance's voice 
was courteous but firm — "it will be 
necess'ry to ask you questions that 
you may deem objectionable. But 
please believe that it will be -for 
your own good to answer them 
"Am I suspected? How thrilling!' 
"Everyone I've talked to thus far 
thinks so." He looked at the girl 

"Oh, so that's how the going is! I 
thought I detected a vague look of 
fear in people's eyes. I think I 
will sit down." She threw herself 
into a chair and gazed up with simu- 
lated dejection. "Am I to be ar- 

"Not just at the minute. But cer- 
tain matters must be straightened 
out. It may be worth your while to 
help us." 

"It sounds ghastly. But go 
"First," said Vanee, "we'd like to 

know about the feud between you 
and Swift." 

"Oh, the devil!" the girl ex- 
claimed disgustedly. "Must that be 
raked up? There was really nothing 
to it. Woody bothered the life out 
of me. I felt sorry for him and 
went around with him a bit when he 
implored me to and threatened to 
resort to all the known forms of 
suicide if I didn't. Then it be- 
came too much for me, and I de- 
cided to draw a line across the 
page. But I'm afraid I didn't go 
about it in a nice -way. I told him 
I was extravagant and cared only 
for luxuries, and that I could never 
marry a poor man." 

"And so, the conclusion we may 
draw is that he played the horses 
heavily in the forlorn hope of amass- 
ing a sufficient fortune to overcome 
your aversion to his poverty— and 
that his bet on Equanimity today 
was a last fling—" 

"Don't say that!" the girl cried. 
"It's a horrible idea, but— it might 
be true. And I don't want to hear 

Vance continued to sti'dy her crit- 

"Yes, as you say. It m-ight be 
true. On the other hand . . . how- 
ever, we'll let it pass." Then he 
asked quickly: "Who telephoned 
you today, just before the River- 
mont Handicap?" 

"What has that to do with any- 

"And why were you so eager to 
take the call on the den phon« and 
shut the door?" 

The girl leaned forward and 
looked at Vance defiantly. 

"What are you trying to get at?" 
she demanded furiously. 

"Are you awnre," Vance went on, 
"that the den downstairs is the only 
room directly connected by wires 
with this room up here?" 

The girl seemed unable to speak. 
She sat pale and rigid. 

"And do you know," he continued, 
without change of intonation, "that 
the wires at this end of the line had 
been disconnected? And are you 
aware that the shot which we 
heard downstairs was not the one 
that ended Swift's life— that he was 
shot in the vault off the hall, several 
minutes before we heard the shot?" 
"You're being ghastly," the girl 
cried. "You're making up night- 
marcs— nightmares to frighten me. 
You're implying terrible things." 

Vance held up his hand to stop 
her reproaches. 

"You misinterpret my attitude, 
Miss Graem," he said softly. "I 
asked you, a moment ago, for your 
own sake, to answer my questions 
frankly. You refuse. In those cir- 
cumstances, you should know the 
facts as they appear to otners." He 
paused. "You and Swift were not 
oh good terms. You knew, as did 
the others, that he usually went up 
to the roof before races. You knew 
where Professor Garden kept his 
revolver. You're familiar with guns. 
A telephone caH for you is perfectly 
timed. You disappear.- Within the 

engagement and told him to call 
me here this afternoon at half-past 
three for a final yes or no. I pur- 
posely stipulated that time, so I 
wouldn't miss the running of the 
Handicap. As you know, he didn't 
call till after four, with excuses 
about not having been able to get 
to a telephone. I tried to get rid 
of him in a hurry, but he was per- 
sistent — the only virtue he pos- 
sesses, so: far as I know. I left him 
dangling on the wire when I came 

"That's deuced queer." Vance 
moved , slowly to a chair and sat 
down with a perplexed frown. "It's 
possible you missed him. However, 
it doesn't matter. Ask the doctor 
to come up, will you?" 

When Garden had loft us Vance 
sat smoking and staring at the ceil- 
ing. I knew from the droop of his 
eyelids that he was disturbed. 

"Deuced queer," ae muttered 

"For Heaven's sake, Vance," 
Markham commented irritably. 
"It's entirely possible Garden 
wasn't watching the stairs as close- 
ly as he imagines." 

"Yes. Oh, yes." Vance nodded 
vaguely. "Everyone worried. None 
on the alert. Normal mechanisms 
not functioning. Still, the stairs are 
visible half way up the hall, and 
the hall itself isn't very spacious 

I Heard What Sounded Like a 

next five minutes Swift is shot be- 
hind that steel door. Another five 
minutes pass; the race is over; and 
a shot is heard. That shot could 
conceivably have been fired by a 
mechanism. The buzzer wires up 
here had been disconnected, ob- 
viously for some specific purpose. 
At the time of the second shot you 
were at the other end of those 
wires. You almost fainted at the 
sight of Swift. Later you tried to 
go upstairs . . Adding all this up: 
you had a motive, a sufficient 
knowledge of the situation, access 
to the criminal agent, the ability to 
act, and the opportunity." Vance 
paused again. "Now are you ready 

to be frank, or have you really 
something to hide?" 

A change came over the girl. She 
relaxed, as if from a sudden at- 
tack of weakness. She did not take 
her eyes from Vance, and appeared 
to be appraising him and deciding 
what course to follow. 

Before she managed to speak 
Heath stamped up the passageway 
and opened the study door. He car- 
ried a woman's black-and-white 
tweed top-coat over his arm. He 
cocked an eyebrow at Vance and 
nodded triumpha'ntly. 

"I take it, Sergeant," Vance 
drawled, "your quest has been suc- 
cessful. You may speak but." He 
turned to Zalia Graem and ex- 
plained: "Sergeant Heath has been 
searching for the gun that fired the 
second shot." 

The girl became suddenly ani- 
mated and leaned forward attentive- 

"After going over the roof and the 
stairs and the hall of the apartment, 
I thought I'd look through the wraps 
hanging in the hall closet," said 
Heath. "The gun was in the pocket 
of this." He threw the coat on the 
davenport and took a .38 gun-metal 
revolver from his pocket. He broke 
it and showed it to Vance and Mark- 
ham. "Full of blanks — and one of 
'em has been discharged." 

"Very good. Sergeant," Vance 
complimented him. "Whose coat is 
this, by the by?" 

"I don't know yet, Mr. Vance; but 
I'm going to find out pronto." 

Zalia Graem had risen and come 

"I can tell you whose coat that 
is," she said. "It belongs to Miss 
Beeton, the nurse. I saw her wear- 
ing it yesterday." 

"Thanks awfully for the identifi- 
cation," returned Vance, his eyes 
resting dreamily on her. 

"All right." She focused her 
gaze on Vance again. "Lemmy Mer- 
rit, one of the various scions of the 
horsy aristocracy that infests our 
eastern seaboard, asked me to drive 
out to Sands Point with him for the 
polo game tomorrow. ' I thought I 
might dig up some more exciting 

out to listen to the race, and then 
went back for a farewell and have- 
a-nice-time-without-me. Just as I 
hung up I heard what sounded like 
a shot and came to the door, to find 
everyone hurrying along the hall. 
An idea went through my head that 
maybe Woody had shot himself— 
that's why I went mid-Victorian and 
almost passed out when I saw him. 
That's everything." 
Vance rose and bowed. 
"Thanks for your ultimate candor, 
Miss Graem. I'm deuced sorry I 
had to torture you to obtain it. And 
please ignore the nightmares you 
accused me of manufacturing. I'm 
really grateful to you for helping 
me fill in the pattern." 

The girl frowned as her intense 
gaze rested on Vance. 

"I wonder if you don't really know 
more about this affair than you pre- 

"My dear Miss Graem! I do not 
pretend to know anything about it." 
Vance went to the door and held it 
open for her. "You may go now, 
but we shall probably want to see 
you again tomorrow, and I just ask 
for your promise that you will stay 
at home where you will be avail- 
"Don't worry, I'll be at home." 
As she went out, Miss Beeton was 
coming up the passageway toward 
the study. The two women passed 
each other without speaking. 

"I'm sorry to trouble you, Mr. 
Vance," the nurse apologized, "but 
Doctor Siefert has just arrived and 
and asked me to inform you that 
he wished very much to see you as 
soon as possible. Mr. Garden," she 
added, "has told him about Mr. 
Swift's death." 

At the moment her gaze fell on 
the tweed coat, and a slight puzzled 
frown lined her forehead. Before 
she could speak Vance said: 

"The sergeant brought your coat 
up here. He didn't know whose it 

was. We were looking for some- 
thing." Then he added quickly: 
"Please tell Doctor Siefert that I 
will be very glad to see him at once. 
And ask him if he will be good 
enough to come here to the study." 
Miss Beeton nodded and went out. 


There was a soft knock, and 
Vance turned from the window. He 
was confronted by Garden, who had 
opened the study door without wait- 
ing for a summons. 

"Sorry, Vance," Garden apolo- 
gized, "but Doc Siefert is down- 
stairs and says he'd like to see you, 
if convenient, before he goes." 

Vance looked at the man -a mo- 
ment and frowned. 

"Miss Beeton informed me of the 
fact a few minutes ago. I asked 
her to tell the doctor I would be 
glad to see him at once., I can't 
understand his sending you also. 
Didn't the nurse give him the mes- 

"I'm afraid not. I know Siefert 
sent Miss Beeton up here, and I 
assumed, as I imagine Siefert did, 
that you had detained her." He 
looked round the room with a puz- 
zled expression. "The fact, is I 
thought she was still up here." 

"You mean she hasn't returned 
downstairs?" Vance asked. 
"No, she hasn't come down yet" 
Vance took a step forward. 
"Are you sure of that, Garden?" 
"Yes, very sure." Garden nod- 
ded vigorously. "I've been in the 
front hall, near the foot of the stairs, 
ever since Doc Siefert arrived." 

"Did you see any of the others 
come down?" 

"Why, yes," Garden told him. 
"Kroon came down and went out. 
And then Madge Weatherby. And 
shortly after the nurse had gone up 
with Siefert's message to you, Zalia 
came down and hurried away. But 
that's alL And, as I say, I've been 
down there in the front hall all the 
"What about Hammle?" 
"Hammle? No, I haven't seen 
anything of him. I thought he waa 
st ill here with you." _ _ 

"It's quite possible Hammle went 
down the main stairs from the ter- 
race, wishing, perhaps, to avoid the 

"He hadn't his hat up here with 
him," Vance returned without look- 
ing up. "He would have had to enter 
the front hall and pass Garden to 
get it. No point in such silly ma- 
neuvers . . . But it isn't Hammle 
I'm thinking of. It's Miss -Beeton. 
I don't like it . . ." He got up 
slowly and tool: out another cigar- 
ette. "She's not the kind of girl that 
would neglect taking my messags 
to Siefert immediately, unless for 
a very good reason." 

"A number of things might have 

"Yes, of course. That's just it. 
Too many things have happened 
here today already." Vance went 
to the north window and looked out 
into the garden. Then he returned 
to the center of the room and stood 
fur a moment in tense meditation. 
"As you say, Markham." His voice 
was barely audible. "Something 
may have happened. . ." Sud- 
denly he threw his cigarette into 
an ash tray and turned on his heel. 
"Oh, my word! I wonder . . . Come 
Sergeant. We'll have to make a 
search— immediately." 

He opened the door quickly and 
started down the hall. We followed 
him with vague apprehension, not 
knowing what was on his mind and 
with no anticipation of what was 
to follow. Vance peered out through 
the garden door. Then he turned 
back, shaking his head. 

"No, it couldn't have been there. 
We would have been able to see." 
His eyes moved inquiringly up and 
down the hall, and after a moment 
a strange, startled look came into 
them. "It could be!" he exclaimed. 
"Oh, my aunt! Damnable things are 
happening here. Wait a second." 

He rapidly retraced his steps to 
the vault door. Grasping the knob, 
he rattled it violently; but the door 
was now locked. Taking the key 
from its nail, he inserted it hur- 
riedly into the lock. As he opened 
the heavy door a crack, a pungent, 
penetrating odor assailed my nos- 
trils. Vance' quickly drew back. 

"Out into the air!" he called over 
his shoulder, in our direction. "All 
of you!" 

Instinctively we made for the door 
to the garden. * 

Vance held one hand over his nose 
and mouth and pushed the vault 
door further inward. Heavy amber- 
colored fumes drifted out into the 
hall, and I felt a stifling, choking 
sensation. Vance staggered back a 
step, but kept his hand on the door- 

"Miss Beeton! Miss Beeton!" he 
called. There Was no response and 
I saw Vance put his head down and 

mave forward into the dense fumes 
that were emanating from the open 
door. He sank to his knees on the 
threshold and leaned forward into 
the vault. The next moment he had 
straightened up and was dragging 
the limp body of the nurse out into 
the passageway. 

As soon as the girl was out of 
the vault, Vance took her up in his 
arms and carried her unsteadily 
out into the garden, where he placed 
her gently on the wicker settee. His 
face was deathly pale; his eyes 
were watering; and he had difficulty 
with his breathing. When he had re- 
leased the girl, he leaned heavily 
against one of the iron posts which 
supported the awning. He opened 
his mouth wide and sucked the fresh 
air into his lungs. 

The nurse was gasping stertor- 
ously and clutching her throat. Al- 
though her breast was rising and 
falling convulsively, her whole body 
was limp and lifeless. 

At that moment Doctor Siefert 
stepped through the garden door, a 
look of amazement on his face. He 
had all the outward appearance of 
the type of medical man Vance had 
described to us the night before. 
He was about sixty, conservatively 
but modishly attired, and with a 
bearing studiously dignified and 
j With a great effort Vance drew 

himself erect. ^_____ 

"Hurry, doctor," he called. "It's 
bromin gas." 

Siefert came rapidly forward, 
moved the girl's body into a more 
comfortable position and opened the 
collar of her uniform. 

"Nothing but the air can help 
her," he said, as he moved one end 
of the settee around so that it faced 
the cool breeze from' " the riv- 
er. -"How are you feeling, Vance?" 
Vance was dabbing his eyes with 
a handkerchief. He blinked once or 
twice and smiled faintly. 

"I'm quite all right." He went 
to the settee and looked down at the 
girl for a moment. "A close call," 
he murmured. 
Siefert inclined his head gravely. 
At this moment Hammle came 
strutting up briskly from a remote 

corner of !he garden. 

"Good God!" he exclaimed. 
"What's the matter?" 

Vance turned to the man in angry 

"Well, well," he greeted him. 

"The roll call is complete. I'll 
tell you later what's the matter. 
Or perhaps you will be able to tell 
me. Wait over there." And he 
jerked his head in the direction of a 
chair nearby. 

"I wish I'd taken the earlier train 
to Long Island," Hammle muttered. 

"It might have been better, don't 
y'know," murmured Vance, turning 
away from him. 

The nurse's strangled coughing 
had abated somewhat. Her breath- 
ing was deeper and .more regular, 
and the gasping had partly subsided. 
Before long she struggled to sit up. 
Siefert helped her. 

"Breathe as deeply and rapidly as 
you can," he said. "It's air you 

The girl made an effort to follow 
instructions, one hand braced 
against the back of the settee, and 
the other resting on Vance's arm. 
A few minutes later she was able 
to speak, but with considerable dif- 

"I fool— bettor now. Except for 
the burning — in my nose and 
"What happened?" she asked. 
"We don't know yet." Vance re- 
turned her gaze with obvious dis- 
tress. "We only know that you were 
poisoned wit!) hromiii gas in the 
vault, whore Swift was shot. We were 
hoping that you could tell us about 
it yourself." 

She shook her head vaguely, and 
there was a dazed look in her eyes. 
"I'm afraid I can't itell you very 
much. It all happened * so un- 
expectedly—so suddenly. All I know 
is that when I went to tell Doctor 
Siefert he might come upstairs, I 
was struck on the head from behind, 
jUSt as I passed the garden door. 
The blow didn't render me entirely 
unconscious, but it stunned me so 
that I was unaware of anything or 
anybody around me. Then I felt 
myself being caught from behind, 
turned about, and forced back up 
the parsagsway and into the vault. 
I have a faint recollection of the 
door being shut upon me. although 
I wasn't sufficiently rational to pro- 
test or even to realize what had 
happened. But I was conscious of 
the fact that inside the vault there 
was a frightful suffpeating smell." 
"Yes. Not a pleasant experience. 
But it could have been much 
worse." Vance spoke in a low voice 
and smiled gravely down at the 
girl. "There's a bad bruise on the 
back of your head. That too might 
have been worse, but the starched 
band of your cap probably saved 
you from more serious injury." 

The girl had got to her feet and 
stood swaying a little as she stead- 
ied herself against Vance. 

"I really feel all right now." She 
looked at Vance wistfully. "And I 
have you to thank— haven't I?" 

Siefert spoke gruffly. "A few 
more minutes of that bromin gas 
would have proved fatal. Whoever 
found you and got you out here 
did so just in time." 

The girl had not taken her eyes 
from Vance. 

"How did you happen to find me 
so soon?" she asked him. 

"Belated reasoning," h e an- 
swered. "I should have found you 
several minutes . before— the mo- 
ment I learned that you had not 
returned downstairs. But at first it 
was difficult to realize that anythjipg 
serious could have happened t o 

"I can't understand it even now," 
the girl said with a bewildered air. 

"Neither can I — entirely/' re- 
turned Vance. "But perhaps I can 
learn something more." 

Going quickly to a pitcher o f 
water Heath had brought, he dipped 
his handkerchief into it. Pressing 
the handkerchief against his face, 
he disappeared into the passageway. 
A minute or so later he returned. In 
his hand he held a jagged piece of 
thin curved glass, about three 
inches long. 

It was part of a broken vial, and 
still clinging to it was a small paper 

to the flo'or accidentally. It could 
only have been taken out delib- 
erately and broken at the right mo- 
ment." He handed the fragment of 
glass to Heath. 

"Take this, Sergeant, and have 
it gone over carefully for finger- 
prints. But if, as I suspect, the 
same person that killed Swift han- 
dled it, I doubt if there will be any 
telltale marks on it. However ..." 
"This was a dastardly thing, 
Vance," Siefert burst out, his eyee 

"Yes. All of that, doctor. So waa 
Swift's murder . . . How are you 
feeling now, Miss Beeton?" 

"A little shaky." she answered 
with a weak smile. "But nothing 
more." She was leaning against one 
end of the settee. 
"Then we'll carry on, what?" 
"Of course," she returned in a low 

Floyd Garden stepped out from 
the hallway at this moment. He 

"What's this beastly odor in the 
hall?" he asked. "It's gotten down- 
stairs. Is anything wrong?" 

"Not now. No," Vance returned. 
"A little bromin gas a few minutes 
ago; but the air will be clear in 
a little while. No casualties. Every 
one doing well . . Did you want 
to see me?" 

Garden looked round at the group 
on the roof with a puzzled air. 

"Awfully sorry to interrupt you, 
Vanee; but the fact is, I came for 
the doctor." His eyes rested on Sie- 
fert, and he smiled dryly. "It's the 
usual thing, doc," he sai,d. "The 
mater seems almost in a state of 
collapse— she assured me that she 
hadn't an ounce of strength left." 

A worried look came into Siefert'a 

"I'll come at once, of course," he 
said. He looked at the nurse -and 
then lifted his gaze to Vance. "Will 
you excuse me?" 

Vance bowed. "Certainly, doc- 
tor. But I think Miss Beeton had 
better remain here in the air tor 
a while longer." 

Siefert left the roof reluctantly. 
With Garden following him. 

Vance watched them until they 
turned through the door of the pass- 
ageway; then he spoke to the nurse. 
"Please sit here a few minutes, 
Miss Beeton. I want to have a talk 
with you. But first I'd like a minute 
or two with Mr. Hammle.'.' 

The nurse nodded her assent and 
sat down a little wearily on the set- 

Vance beckoned curtly to 
Hammle. "Suppose we go inside 
for a moment." 

Hammle rose with alacrity. "I 
was wondering how much longer 
you gentlemen were going to keep 
me here." 

Vance led the way into the study, 
and Markham and I followed be- 
hind Hammle. 

"What were you doing on the roof, 
Mr. Hammle?" asked Vance. "I 
told you some time ago, after 
our brief interview, that you might 

Hammle fidgeted. He was pat- 
ently apprehensive and wary. 

"There's no crime in going out 
into the garden for a while — 
is there?" he asked with unimpres- 
sive truculence. 

"None whatever," Vance re- 
turned casually. "I was wonderin' 
why you preferred the gardens to 
going home. Devilish tilings have 
been happening in the garden this 

"As I told you, I wish I had 
gone. How did I know—?" 

"That's hardly the point, Mr. 
Hammle." Vance cut him short 
"It doesn't answer my question," 

It Was Part ef a Broken Vial. 

label on which was printed the sym- 
bol "Br." 

"I found this on the tiled floor, 
In the far corner of the vault It 
was just beneath one of the racks 
which holds Professor Garden's as- 
sortment of chemicals. There's an 
empty space in the rack, but this 
vial of bromin couldn't^have fallen 

"Well now, look here," Hammle 
explained fulsomely; "I had just 
missed a train to Long Island, and 
it was more than an hour until the 
next one. When I went out of here 
and started to go downstairs. I sud- 
denly said to myself, 'It'll be pleas- 
anter waiting in the garden than in 
the Pennsylvania station.' So I went 
out on the roof and hung around. 
And here I am." 

Vance regarded the man shrewd- 
ly and nodded his head. 

"Yes, as you say. Here you are. 
More or less in evidence. By the 
by, Mr. Hammle, what did you see 
while you were waiting in the gar- 
den for the next train?" 

"Not a thing — absolutely!" 
Hammle's tone was aggressive. "I 
walked along the boxwood hedges, 
smoking, and was leaning over the 
parapet by the gate, looking out at 
the city, when I heard you come 
out carrying the nurse." 

Vance narrowed his eyes: it waa 
obvious he was not satisfied with 
Hammle's explanation. 

"And you saw no one else either 
in the garden or on the terrace?" 

"Not a soul," the man assured 

"And you heard nothing?" 

"Not until you gentlemen came 

Vance stood regarding Hammle 

for several moments. Then he 
turned and walked toward the gar- 
den window. 

"That will be all for the mo- 
ment," he said brusquely. "But we 
shall probably want to see you to- 

"I'll be at home all day. Glad 
to be of any service." Hammle shot 
a covert look at Vance, made hi» 
adieux quickly, and went out down 
the passageway. 

Vance returned at once to the 
garden. Miss Beeton drew herself 
up a little as he approached her. j 

"Do you feel equal to a few ques- 
tions?" he asked her. 

"Oh, yes." She smiled with mora 
assurance now, and rose.

6parta, Ky., Feb. 15th.— Died, Feb. 
12, 1937 from a heart attack, Lem- 
uel Warford, age 64, son of Levi 
Warford and wife, born in Estell co- 
unty. He came here about 25 years 
ago. March 22, 1900, he married 
Miss Lulie Brumback of Frankfort. 
Ky. To this union was born seven 
children, two of whom preceeded 
him to the grave. He was a man of 
unassuming nature, sober and in- 
dustrious, a good neighbor and a 
splendid citizen. Early in life he 
became a member of the Baptist 
church and remained a constant 
member, until his death. The fun- 
eral was conducted from the late 
residence, Sunday afternoon. Rev. 
Caudell of the Carrollton Baptist 
church delivered a very impressive 
discourse over the remains, after 
which the body was laid to rest in 
the Carrallton cemetery.

Campbell, Gallatin and Kenton

losing their property from fore- 
closure, or otherwise in distress on 
account of debt, who could be help- 
ed by the Farm Debt Adjustment 
Service which is now a part of the 
Rurau Rehabilitation Program of the 
Resettlement Administration. 

"While thousands of distressed 
debtors in the nation and hundreds 
in this state have been helped to 
clear up their debt entanglements- 
land and chattle — to the satisfaction 
of both creditor and debtor, recent 
j studies indicate that there are still 
I those who do not take advantage of 
friendly debt conciliation ser- 
vice offered toy the Resettlement Ad- 
ministration," Mr. Blackburn said. 
"While it is not always possible to 
save a farm from foreclosure, in 
many cases we do, and there is al- 
ways a good chance that we can be 
of some assistance. The Farm Debt 
Adjustment Service is available to 
all farmers in serious difficulty on 
account of debts and it costs nothing 
to apply," he declared.

the fact that voluntary committees 
composed of public spirited citizens 
working without pay, other than

good, as these patches soon wear 
away, leaving the highway no, bet- 
ter off than it was before this 1 re- 
pair work was done. 

Really, what should be done, In 
the mind of many, would be a re- 
building of this most important 
gateway from Great Lakes to Miami 
Fla. And in rebuilding this high- 
way, it should be broadened not less 
than 20 feet, while 30 feet would be 
more advisable. 

The Dixie Highway is the most 
traveled highway in the State of 
Kentucky, and steps should be taken 
to remedy the existing evils that 
the traveling autoist and trucks pay 
for in gas tax. This important road- 
way to the south is entirely too nar- 
row for its Immense traffic and many 
accidents and deaths have resulted 
from this narrowness and bad con-

rate of contributions required of 
any employee exceed fifty percen* 
of the total rate of contributions re- 
quired of his employer with respect 
to the same time. 

5. Q. Who will be held respon- 
sible for the peyment of contribu- 

A. The employer. The employer 
is required to report and remit his 
own contributions, if any, and is also 
required to deduct the contributions 
of employees, if any, from their 
wages and remit the same to the 
Unemployment Compensation Com- 

6. Q. May an employer deduct 
any part of his own contribution 
from the wages of his workers? 

A. No. 

7. Q. May a worker agree to pay 
any part of the employer's contri- 

A. No, such an agreement is ill- 
egal and void. 

8. Q. What items are included in 
"wages" upon which contributions 
are based? 

A. "Wages" for purposes of the 
"Unemployment Compensation Law" 
includes all remuneration payable 
for personal services, including com- 
missions and bonuses and the cash 
value of all remuneration payable 
in any medium other than cash 
Gratuities customarily received by an 
individual in the course of his em- 
ployment from persons other than 
his employing unit shall be treated 
as wages payable by his employing 
unit. The reasonable cash value of 
remuneration payable in any medium 
other than cash, and the reasonable 
average amount of gratuities, shall 
be estimated and determined) in ac- 
cordance with rules prescribed by 
the Commission. Amounts paid tc 
traveling salesmen or other employ- 
ees as allowance or reimbursement 
for traveling or other expenses in- 
curred in the business of the em- 
ployer constitute wages only to the 
extent of the excess of such amounts 
over such expenses actually incur- 
red and accounted for toy the em- 

9. Q. What workers are protect- 
ed by the Unemployment Compen- 
sation Law? 

A. All individuals in the employ- 
ment of an employing unit which 
employs four or more individuals in 
each of twenty different weeks with- 
in either the current or preceedinr 
calendar year, except that for the 
calendar year 1936 only those indi- 
viduals employed by employers of 
eight or more individuals in em- 
ployment for some portion of each 
of twenty (20) days during the "year 
of 1936, each day being in a different 
calendar week. 

(a) Agricultural labor, domestic 
service in private homes, services 
performed as an officer or member 
of a crew of a vessel on navigable 
waters of the United States; govern- 
ment employees; non-profit oragn- 
izations, organized and operated ex- 
clusively for religious, charitable, 
scientific, literary, or educational 
purposes are exempt. 

Ob) But employees of these em- 
ployers, not specifically subject to 
the law by reason of too few em- 
ployees, and not exempted in (a) 

above, may come under the Act if 
the employers voluntarily elect to 
provide unemployment compensa- 
tion .protection for their workers, 
and the commission approves such 

10. Q. Who is an "employer"? 

A. An "employer" is any employ- 
ing unit which in each of twenty 
different weeks within) either the 
current or the proceeding calendar 
year (whether or not such weeks are 
or were consecutive) has or had in 
his employment, four or more indi- 
viduals (not necessarily simultane- 
ously and irrespective of whether 
the same individuals are or were 
employed in each such week). 

11. Q. What is the Probationary 

A. The Probationary Period if 
the beginning two (2) week .period 
of employment, during which time 
no deductions for employee contri- 
butions are to be made. However 
after the individual has passed Ml 
second week of employment for the 
same employer, he (the employer) 
shall deduct the amount for the first 
two weeks as well as for the third 

Suppose A is working for B for 
$20.00 a week. B during the first two 
weeks will not make any deductions 
from A's wages. The third week he 
will make deductions for the first 
two weeks and also for the third 
The amount deducted will be $ .54 
($ .18 for the $20.00 receivedi for 
each week's employment). 

12. Q. (a) Under the Act, indi- 
viduals employed at non-manual 
labor and making more than $2,600 
a year or more than $50 a week are 
exempt from contributions. Suppose 
an individual is employed at non- 
manual labor and one week he re- 
ceives $45.00, the next week he makes 
$50.00; this irregularity * of salary 
continuing throughout the year. At 
the end thereof he has received ir 
excess of $2,600.00. Will he be liable 
for contribution and if so, to what 

A. Yes, he is subject to the Act 
for those weeks in which he receives 
$50.00 or less. 

Assuming that he has passed his 
probationary period in the previous 
year, each week he receives $50.00 or 
less he will be required to contri- 
bute. Those weeks in which he 
makes in excess of $50.00 he will be 
exempt from contributions. If dur- 
ing twenty-five weeks of 1937 am 
individual makes $45.00 each week 
amounting to $1125.60, during the 
remaining twlenty-setan weeks of 
the year he makes 60.00 each week 
amounting to $1620.00, he receives 
then a total of $2745.00 per year. He 
will not be exempt because he made 
in excess of $2600.00, but will be re- 
quired to contribute $10.01 (.9 of 17r 
of the $1125.00). For those twenty- 
seven weeks in which he received 
$60.00 (amounting to 1620.00) he wil! 
be exempt from contributions. 

12. Q. (to) Suppose that the 
same facts as in (a) exists but over 
a period of a year, the individual 
does not receive a total of $2600.00 
Will he be required to contribute for 
the whole amount or will there 'be ir 
exception as to part? 

A. He will not be required to con- 
tribute on the whole amount, but 
will be exempt as to a part. On the 
amount received each week in ex- 
cess of $50.00 no contribution will be 
made tout as to those amounts re- 
ceived each week of $50.00 or less 
contributions will be required to be 
made. For example — A is working 
for B— During forty weeks of the 
year he makes $40.00 a week amount- 
ing to $1600.00, during the remain- 
ing twelve weeks of the year he 
makes $60.00 per week amounting tc 
$720.00; for the total year he makes 
$2320.00. This is less than the amount 
exempted under the Act. A is re- 
quired to contribute only on the 
$1600.00 rather than on the $2320.00 
The employee will not be required to 
con|ritoute from the $720.00, that 
amount received by making more 
than $50.00 a week. 

13. Q. If any employer is doubt- 
ful as to whether he is liable under 
the law, what should he do? 

A. Pay contributions in the same 
manner as an employer who knows 
he is liable, and make claim for ex- 
emption and refund at any time 
within' twelve months. 

14. Q. What is the relation be- 
tween the Federal Social Security 
Act and the Kentucky Unemploy- 
ment Act? 

■ A: Title IX of the Federal Social 
Security Act imposes a uniform tax 
on all employers of eight or more 
individuals, certain types of employ- 
ment toeing exempted. However 
since Kentucky has passed an Un- 
employment Compensation Law ap- 
proved by the Social Security Board 
of the United States, each such em- 
ployer may deduct from the Federal 
tax an amount not to exceed ninety 
percent thereof and not to exceed 
the amount of his contribution to 
the State unemployment fund. 

15. Q. What records may be re- 
quired of an employer under the 
Kentucky Act? 

A. The Unemployment Oompen- 
sation Commission may require any 
employer of one or more persons to 
furnish to it from time to time in- 
formation concerning the total a- 
mount of wages paid, total number 
of persons employed, the individual 
percord of each employee, and any 
other related matters which the 
the Commission deems necessary to 
the effective administration of the 

16. Q. Will the reports of con- 
tributors be open to public inspec- 

A. No. 

17. Q. If an employer sells his 
business, will his reserve account be 
returned bo him, or will it automat- 
ically be transferred to the new 

A. In the event that an employer 
sells his business his reserve account 
if any, will be transferred to the new 
owner who takes the same subject tc 
all of its liabilities. 

18. Q. Who is eligible for un- 
employment benefits? 

A. Those unemployed persons 

(a) Have had at least twenty 
weeks of employment within the 
fifty-two consecutive weeks proceed- 
ing the close of his most recent week 
of employment; 

(to) Are available and mentally 
and physically able to work; 

(c) Are unemployed through nc 
fault of their own; 

(d) Have registered for work at 
the employment office at 6uch place 
and time and manner as the com- 
mission may prescribe; 

(c) Has been totally unemployed 
for a waiting period of at least three 
weeks prior to the week in which he 
claims benefits (such three weeks of 
total unemployment need not be 
consecutive, -but shall be accumulated 
over the period of twenty-six con- 
secutive weeks preceeding any week 
in which he claimed benefits). 

19. Q. Does the Unemployment 
Compensation Act fulfill any other 
purpose than receiving contributions 
and paying benefits? 

A. Yes. Great effort will be put 
forth by the Unemployment Com- 
mission and the Director, Kentucky 
State Employment Service, with the 
advice and aid of the Advisory 
Councils, in an endeavor to stabilize 
employment; to encourage and assist 
in the adoption of practical methods 
of vocational training, retaining and 
vocational guidance; to investigate 
recommend, advise and assist in the 
establishment and operation by mu- 
nicipalities, counties, school districts 
and the State, of reserves for public 
works to toe used in times of business 
depression andi unemployment; to 
promote the re-employment of un- 
employed workers throughout the 
State in every other way that may 
be feasible and to these ends to carry 
on and publish the results of inves 7 
tigation and research studios. 

20. Q. How large are the bene- 

A. The benefit payable can. a- 
mount to fifty percent of the un- 
employed worker's former full time 
weekly wage; however, it cannot ex- 
ceed fifteen dollars per week and not 
less than five dollars per week, or 
three fourths of his former full time 
weekly wage, whichever is the lesser 

For example, A, B, C, and D are 
working for X. A makes $50.00 per 
week; B makes $7.00 per week; C 
makes $27.00 per week, and D makes 
$6.00 per week. They all become 
unemployed and each is atole tc 
qualify for benefits. A's weekly wage 
was $50.00, he will receive $15.00 as 
a benefit (he cannot receive 50% of 
his weekly wage as $15.00 is the lar- 
gest benefit payable under the Act.) ; 
B's weekly wage was $7.00, he will 
receive $5.00 as a weekly benefit (the 
least he can receive is $5.00 or % of 
uis weekly wage, which ever is the 
lesser, $5.00 is less than % of $7.00) ; 
C's weekly wage was $27.00, he will 
receive $13.50 for his weekly benefit 
(fifty percent of his weekly wage) 
D's weekly wage was $6.00, he will 
receive $4.50 for his weekly benefit 
(% of $6.00, this amount being the 
lesser of % and $5.00). 

Furniture Made by Hand 
Before 1840 furniture in this coun- 
bv was made by cabinet makers 
ind was entirely hand work. After 
that date the first factories started 
turning out furniture that was made 
largely by machines. The style then 
In vogue was American empire, a 
crude distortion of the French period 
of Napoleon.

Astrological Houses 

In Judicial astrology, the whole 
heaven is divided into 12 parts by 
means of great circles crossing ths 
north and south points of the hori- 
zon. Heavenly bodies pass through 
these every 24 hours. Each of these 
divisions is called a house.

Preference to Flood Counties In 
Making Payments In the Agri- 
cultural Conservation Program 
The East Central Division has ad- 
vised us that counties in? the flood 
area will be given preference in re- 
gard to auditing and certifying ap- 
plications for payments. Assurance i 
has been given that payments will 
be forthcoming within the next few°j 
days according to John E. Crigler 
Secretary of the Boone County Agri- 
cultural Conservation Association. 
All payments have been greatly de- 
layed owing to the fact that the 
Washington office was setting up 
the final rates of payment and the 
deduction rates for administrative 

be easily recognized. French clover 
seeds are stained green and Italian 
seeds are stained red. 

These clovers are not adapted to 
our climate and are not as thrifty 
as our domestic clovers. French and 
Italian Red Clovers are slower in 
growing; produce a smaller plant; 
and die out sooner than our natice 
clovers. Even though European clo- 
ver seeds sell for a few dollars a 
bushel less than native seed farmers 
are running a great deal or risk in 
buying the cheaper unadapted clo- 
ver seed.

it will go forward with but little 
delay. A high-type paving job of 
thirteen miles from the city limit* 
of Mayfleld to the MoCracken Co- 
unty line; the construction of seven 
miles of high-type paving from 
Nortonsville to the Muhlenberg Co-

the Paducah-Smithland road for 6.9 

The main artery from Central 
Kentucky to Louisville will get fur- 
ther work from the 1937 Federal Aid

Louisville city limits, 6.5 miles out 
the Shelbyville road to join with the 
concrete paving in Middletown, will 
be let. Jefferson County also will 
get 6.6 miles of high-type paving 
from the Taylor monument to the 
Oldhom County line. 

The 1937 Federal Aid program in- 
cludes 47 projects, thirty-five of 
which are either construction or 
grade and drain and twelve ore for 
roadside improvements. These pro- 
jects are all on arterial highways 
and are in 35 counties.

figures and compiling notes, all of 
which will ultimately become the 
State's approved Federal Aid Pro- 
gram for 1938. The 1937 program, a 
$4,600,000 affair, half of Which is 
being furnished by the United State? 
Government, already is well under 
way with contracts being advertised 
and bids being received. 

The 1938 program, which will be 
larger than any of its predecessors 
will be made up of approximately 
fifty projects which will touch each 
section of the state. After arrang- 
ing the program it will be necessary 
to get its approval before submitt- 
ing it to the authorities for approval 
for Federal Aid. Besides the con- 
struction of highways, replacement 
of bridges, the program will also in- 
clude roadside improvement. 

Four projects, three of which are 
on the 1937 program and a fourth 
on the 1937 list, all approved but as 
yet have not been started, are listed 
as important from central Kentuc- 
ky. The lone 1936 project, which 
has not been let, is the Frankfort 
Bridge, a span leading from north 
to south Frankfort. Bids for this 
contract, which calls for an ex- 
penditure of $330,000, are now being 
received and will be opened in the 
Highway offices at Frankfort, Feb

The "Sammie" dog is mistaken 
re. eatedly for a breed known as the 
Spitz, which is much smaller than 
the pure-bred Samoyede. The coat 
Df the Samoyede is a strong attri-

THURSDAY, FEB. 25, 1937 




CHAPTER I— Philo Vance, famous de- 
tective, and John F. X. Markham, dis- 
trict attorney for New York county are 
dining in Vance's apartment when 
Vance receives an anonymous telephone 
message informing him of a "disturbing 
psychological tension at Professor Ephri- 
am Garden's apartment" advising that 
he read up on radio active sodium, con- 
sult a passage In the Aeneid and coun- 
seling that "Equanimity is essential." 
Professor Garden is famous In chemical 
research. The message, decoded by 
Vance, reminds him that Professor Gar- 
den's son Floyd and his puny cousin, 
woode Swift, are addicted to horse-rac- 
ing. Vance says that "Equanimity" Is 
a horse running next day in the River- 
mont handicap. Vance is convinced that 
the message was sent by Dr. Siefert. 
the Garden's family physician. He ar- 
ranges to have lunch next day at the 
Gardens' penthouse. 

CHAPTER H.— Vance Is greeted by 
Floyd Garden and meets Lowe Hammle. 
an elderly follower of horse racing. 
Floyd expresses concern over Swift's 
queer actions. Gathered around an elab- 
orate loud speaker service, listening to 
the racing are Cecil Kroon, Madge 
Weatherby and Zalia Graem, who bet 
varying amounts on the race. There la 
tension under the surface gaiety. Zalia 
and Swift are not on speaking terms. 
Mrs. Garden, supposedly ill, comes 
downstairs and places a $100 bet on a 

CHAPTER III.— Swift, recklessly bets 
110.000 on "Equanimity and goes to the 
roof garden to hear the results. Floyd 
follows Swift, remaining away several 
minutes. Kroon leaves to keep an ap- 
pointment before the race starts. Zalia 
answers a phone call in the den. Miss 
Beeton, a nurse, and Vance bet on 
"Azure Star." Soon after the announce- 
ment that "Azure Star" wins, the guests 
hear a shot. Vance finds Swift dead, 
shot through the head with a revolver 
nearby. He says Swift has been mur- 
dered. After calling the police, he finds 
the door of a vault ajar. 

CHAPTER IV.— Kroon returns arid Is 
sharply questioned by Vance, who finds 
he had not left the building. Vance or- 
ders Miss Beeton to guard the stairway 
and prevent Mrs. Garden and Zalia 
from viewing Swift's body. Floyd Gar- 
den admits the revolver belongs to bis 

CHAPTER V.— Further questioning by 
Vance reveals that the revolver had been 
found recently by Zalia in the presence 
of the other guests. Floyd hints that 
Swift bet so recklessly because of Zalia 
Markham, Sergeant Heath and two de- 
tectives arrive.

members of the household?" 

"There's very little to tell. Pro-

on in dark corners, and nothing I 
do seems to be of any use. . . . 
But please don't think I am not 
ready to help — to do anything I can

work in the dark, don't you?" 

"Don't we all have to work in the 
dark?" Vance murmured, without 
taking his eyes from her. "Tell 
me who you think could have been 
guilty of the terrible things that 
have happened here." 

All fear and doubt seemed to have 
left the girl. She moved toward 
the balustrade and stood looking 
over the river with an impressive 
calm and self-control. 

CHAPTER VI.— Markham and Ser- 
geant Heath scorn the murder theory, 
until Vance says that In the vault he 
found a piece of lens missing from 
Swift's glasses, Indicating he was killed 
there and dragged away. 

CHAPTER VII.— Madge Weatherby 
appears in the garden through a gate. 
Confronted by Vance, she declares dra- 
matically that she suspects Kroon. be- 
cause he had threatened her when ha 
learned she cared for Swift. 

CHAPTER VIII.— Kroon admits he did 
not leave the building, but entered an 
apartment downstairs to make a finan- 
cial settlement with Stella Freumon, a 
blackmailer. In the den where Zalia 
answered a phone call when the shot 
was heard, Vance finds the wires of the 
buzzer disconnected. He asks Floyd why 
he did not place Swift's bet. 

CHAPTER IX.— Floyd says he didn't 
place Swift's bet because he knew 
'Equanimity" couldn't win. When 
Hamtnle tells of Zalia's being a good 
shot, Vance questions her concerning a 
quarrel with Swift and the phone call In 
the den. Meanwhile Sergeant Heath 
brings in Miss Beeton's coat containing 
a revolver with a blank cartridge dis- 

CHAPTER X.— Vance rescues Miss 
Beeton from the vault, mysteriously 
filled, with bromin gas. Her head is 
bruised. Floyd tells Dr. Siefert that his 
mother has become suddenly ill. 


"Woode Swift's death wasn't at 
all the sort of thing I would expect 
to happen here," the nurse said. 
"I wouldn't have been surprised at 
some act of impulsive violence, but 
this premeditated murder, so sub- 
tle and so carefully planned, seems 
alien to the atmosphere here. Be- 
sides, it isn't a loving family, ex- 
cept on the surface. Floyd Garden 
is saner than the others. His in- 
terests are narrow, to be sure, but, 
on his own mental level. He'a de- 

As we crossed the garden to the 
balustrade, Miss Beeton took a deep 
breath and shuddered slightly. 

"You'd better have your coat," 
Vance suggested. He ' returned to 
the study and brought it out to her. 
When he had helped her into it she 
turned suddenly and looked at him 

"Why was my coat brought to the 
■tudy?" she asked. 

Vance's tone was reassuring. We 
really owe you an explanation. You 
see, two revolvers figured in Swift's 
death. One of them we all saw on 
the roof here — that was the one 
with which the chap was killed. But 
no one downstairs heard the shot 
because the poor fellow met his end 
in Professor Garden's storeroom 

"Ah! That was why you wanted 
to know if the key was in its place." 
The girl nodded. 

"The shot we all heard," Vance 
went on, "was fired from another 
revolver after Swift's body had been 
carried from the vault and placed 
in the chair out here. We were 
naturally anxious tb find that other 
weapon, and Sergeant Heath made 
a search for it . . ." ';' j 

"But— but— my coat?" Her hand 
went out and she clutched at 
Vance's sleeve as a. look of under-, 
standing came into her frightened 

"Yes," Vance said, "the Sergeant 
found the revolver in the pocket of 
your top-coat. Someone had put it 
there as a temporary hiding-place." 

She recoiled with a sudden intake 
of breath. 

"How dreadful!" Her words were 
barely audible. 

Vance put his hand on her shoul- 

"But it's too terrible! . . . And 
then this — this attempt on my life. 
I can't understand. I'm frightened." 

"Come, come," Vance exhorted 
the girl. "It's over now, and we 
need your help." 

She gazed directly into his eyes 
for several minutes. Then she gave 

pendable, too, I think. He has al- 
ways taken the course of ignoring 
the existence of those qualities 
which have caused friction between 
the other members of the house- 

She paused and frowned. 

"As for Mrs. Garden, I feel that 
by nature she is shallow and is 
deliberately creating for herself a 
deeper and more complex mode of 
life, which she doesn't in the least 
understand. That, of course, makes 
her unreasonable and dangerous. I 
hae never had a more unreasonable 
patient. She has no consideration 
whatever for others. Her affection 
for her nephew has never seemed 
genuine to me." 

"And Professor Garden?" 

"He's a researcher and scientist, 
of course, and, therefore, not alto- 
gether human, in the conventional 
sense. ' I have thought sometimes 
that he isn't wholly rational" 

"What is your impression of the 
guests who were present today?" 
Vance said. 

"I don't feel competent to pass 
judgment on them," the girl re- 
plied seriously. "I can't entirely 
understand them. But each one 
"strikes me as dangerous in his own 
way. They are all playing a game 
—and it seems to be a game with- 
out rules. To them the outcome 
justifies the methods they use." - 

"Yes, quite. You have clear vi- 
sion." Vance scrutinized the girl 
beside him. "And you took up 
nursing because you are able to 
face the realities. You are not 
afraid of life — or of death." 

The girl looked embarrassed. 

"You're making too much of my 
profession. After all, I had to earn 
my living, and nursing appealed to 

"Yes, of course. It would:" Vance 
nodded. "But tell me, wouldn't you 
rather not have to work for your 

She looked up. 

"Perhaps. But isn't it natural 
for every woman to prefer luxury 
and security to drudgery and un- 

"No doubt," said Vance. "And 
speakin' of nursing, just what do 
you think of Mrs. Garden's condi- 

Miss Beeton hesitated before she 

"Really, 1 don't know what to say. 
I can't understand it. And I rather 
suspect that Doctor Siefert himself 
is puzzled by it Mrs. Garden is 
obviously a sick woman. She shows 
many of the symptoms of that nerv- 
ous, erratic temperament exhibited 
by people suffering from cancer. 
Though she's much better some 
days than others, I know that she 
suffers a great deal. Doctor Siefert 
tells me she is really a neurologi- 
cal case; but I get the feeling, at 

ous argument regarding Equanimi- 
ty's chances." 

"Was it generally known to the 
other members of the afternoon 
gatherings how Swift felt about this 
race and Equanimity?" 

"Yes, the matter was freely dis- 
cussed for days— You see," the girl 
added in explanation, "it's impos- 
sible for me not to overhear some 
of these afternoon discussions." 

"By the by," asked Vance, "how 
did you come to bet on Azure Star?" 

"Frankly," the girl confessed shy- 
ly, "I've been .mildly interested in 
the horse - betting parties here, 
though I've never had any desire 
to make a wager myself. But I 
overheard you tell Mr. Garden that 
you had picked Azure Star, and 
the name was so appealing that I 
asked Mr. Garden to place that bet 
for me. It was the first time I 
ever bet on a horse." 

"And Azure Star came in." Vance 
sighed. "Too bad. Actually you 
bet against Equanimity, you know- 
he was the favorite. A big gamble. 
Most unfortunate that you won. Be- 
ginner's luck, d" ye see, is always 

The girl's face became suddenly 
sombre, and she looked steadily at 

Vance for several moments before 
she spoke again. 

"Do you really think it will prove 

"Yes. Oh, yes. Inevitable. You 
won't be able to resist making oth- 
er wagers. One doesn't stop with 
the first bet if one wins. And, in- 
variably, one loses in the end." 

Again the girl gave Vance a long 
and troubled look; then her gaze 
drifted to the darkening sky over- 

"But Azure Star is a beautiful 
name, isn't it?" She pointed up- 
ward. "There's one now." 

We all looked up. High above we 
saw a single bright star shining 
with blue luminosity in the cloud- 
less sky. After a moment Vance 
moved toward the parapet and 
looked out over the waters of the 
river to the purpling hills and the 
still glowing sunset colors in the 
west. f 

"No city in the world," Vance 
said, "is as beautiful as New York 
seen from a vantage point like this 
in the early twilight." (I wondered 
at his sudden change of mood.) 

He stepped up on the parapet and 
looked down into the great abyss of 
deep shadows and flickering lights 
far below. A curious chill of fear 
ran over me — the sort of fear I 
have always felt when I have seen 
acrobatic performers perilously bal- 
anced high above a circus arena. 

Miss Beeton was standing close 
to Markham, and she, too, must 
have experienced something of the 
sensation I felt, for I saw her face 
go suddenly pale. Her eyes were 
fixed on Vance with a look of ap- 
prehensive horror. 

"Vance!" It was Markham's 
stern voice that broke the silence. 
"Come down from there!" 

Vance jumped down and turned 
to us. 

"Frightfully sorry," he said. 
"Height does affect most people. I 


Come Down 


"I was just coming up for you, 
Mr. Vance. Mrs. Garden insists on 
seeing you gentlemen." Then he 
added in a low tone: "She's in a 
tantrum. A bit hysterical. Don't 
take anything she may say too se- 

We entered the bedroom. Mrs. 
Garden, in a salmon-pink silk dress- 
ing gown, was in bed, bolstered up 
by a collection of pillows. Her face 
was drawn and, in the slanting rays 
of the night-light, seemed flabby 
and unhealthy. Her eyes glared de- 
moniacally as she looked at us, and 
her fingers clutched nervously at 
the quilt. Miss Beeton stood at the 
far side of the bed, looking down at 
her patient with calm concern; and 
Professor Garden leaned heavily 
against the window-sill opposite, his 
face a mask of troubled solicitude. 

"I have something to say. and I 
want you all to hear it." Mrs. Gar- 
den's voice was shrill, and strident. 
"My nephew has been killed to- 
day—and I know who did it!" She 
glared venomously at Floyd Garden 
who stood near the foot of the bed, 
his pipe hanging limply from the 
corner of his mouth. "You did it!" 
She pointed an accusing finger at 
her son. "You've always hated 
Woody. You've been jealous of him. 
No one else had any reason to do 
this despicable thing. I suppose I 
should lie for you and shield you. 
But to what end? So you could kill 

didn't realize." He looked at the 
girl. "Will you forgive me? . . ." 

As he spoke Floyd Garden 
stepped out on the roof through the 
passageway door. 

"Sorry, Vance," he apologized, 
"but Doc Siefert wants Miss Beeton 
downstairs— if she feels equal to it. 
The mater is putting on one of her 

The nurse hurried away immedi- 
ately, and Garden strolled up to 
Vance. He was again fussing with 
His pipe. 

"A beastly mess," he mumbled. 
"And you've certainly put the fear 
of God and destruction into the 
hearts of the pious boys and girls 
here this afternoon. They all got 
the jitters after you talked with 
them." He looked up. "The fact is, 
Vance, if you should want to see 
Kroon or Zalia Graem or Madge

somebody else? You killed Woody, 
and I know you killed him. And I 
know why you did it . . ." 

Floyd Garden stood through this 
tirade without moving and without 

perceptible emotion. — — i — 

"And why did I do it, mater?" 
"Because you were jealous of 
him. Because you knew that I had 
divided my estate equally between 
you two— and you want it all for 
yourself. You always resented the 
fact that I loved Woody as well as 
you. And now you think that by 
having got Woody out of the way, 
you'll get everything when I die. 
But you're mistaken. You'll get 
nothing! Do you hear me? Nothing! 
Tomorrow I'm going to change my 
will. Woody' s share will go to your 
father, with the stipulation that you 
will never get or inherit a dollar of 
it And your share will go to chari- 
ty." She laughed hysterically and 
beat the bed with her clenched fists. 
Doctor Siefert had been watching 
the woman closely. He now moved 
a little nearer the bed. 

"An ice-pack, immediately," he 
said to the nurse; and she went 
quickly from the room. Then he 
busied himself with his medicine 
case and deftly prepared a hypo- 
dermic injection. 

The woman relaxed under his pa- 
tient dictatorial scrutiny and per- 
mitted him to give her the injec- 
tion. She lay back on the pillows, 
staring blankly at her son. The 
nurse returned to the room and ar- 
ranged the ice-bag for her patient. 
Doctor Siefert then quickly made 
out a prescription and turned to 
Miss Beeton. 

"Have this filled at once. A tea- 
spoonful every two hours until Mrs. 
Garden falls asleep." 

Floyd Garden stepped forward 
and took the prescription. 

"I'll phone the pharmacy," he 
said. "It'll take them only a few 
minutes to send it over." And he 
went out of the room. 

As we passed the den door, we 
could hear Floyd Garden telephon- 

"I think Mrs. Garden will quiet 
down now," Doctor Siefert re- 
marked to Vance when we reached 
the drawing-room. "As I told you, 
you" mustn't take her remarks se- 
riously when she's in this condition. 
She will probably have forgotten 
about it by tomorrow." 

"Her bitterness, however, did not 
seem entirely devoid of" rationality," 
Vance returned. 

Siefert frowned but made no com- 
ment on Vance's statement. In- 
stead he said in his quiet well- 
modulated voice, as he sat down 
leisurely in the nearest chair: "This 
whole affair is very shocking. Floyd 
Garden gave me but a few details 
when I arrived. Would you care to 
enlighten me further?" 

Vance readily complied. He brief- 
ly went over the entire case, be- 
ginning with the anonymous tele- 
phone message he had received the 
night before. (Not by the slight- 
est sign did the doctor indicate any 
previous knowledge of that tele- 
phone call. He sat looking at Vance 
with serene attentiveness, like a 
specialist listening to the case his- 

tory of a patient.') Vance withheld 
no important detail from him. 

"And the rest," Vance concluded, 
"you yourself have witnessed." 

Siefert nodded very slowly two or 
three times. 

"A very serious situation," he 
commented gravely, as if making a 
diagnosis. "Some of the things you 
have told me seem highly signifi- 
cant. A shrewdly conceived mur- 
der — and a vicious one. Especial- 
ly the hiding of the revolver in 
Miss Beeton's coat and the attempt 
on her life with the bromin gas in 
the vault." 

"I seriously doubt," said Vance, 
"that the revolver was put in Miss 
Beeton's coat pocket with any in- 
tention of incriminating her. I 
imagine it was to have been taken 
out of the house at the first oppor- 
tunity. But I agree with you that 
the bromin episode is highly mysti- 
fyin'." Vance, without appearing to 
do so, was watching the doctor 
closely. "When you asked to see 
me on your arrival here this after- 
noon," he went on, "I was hoping 
that you might have some sugges- 
tion which, coming from one who 
is familiar with the domestic situa- 
tion here, might put us on the track 
to a solution." 

Siefert solemnly shook his head 
several times. 

"Np, no. I am sorry, but I am 
completely at a loss myself. When 
I asked to speak to you and Mr. 
Markham it was because I was 
naturally deeply interested in the 
situation here and anxious to hear 
what you might have to say about 
it." He paused, shifted slightly in 
his chair, and then asked: "Have 
you formed any opinion from what 
you have been able to learn?" 

"Yes. Oh, yes. Frankly, how- 
ever, I detest my opinion. I'd hate 
to be right about it. A sinister, un- 
natural conclusion is forcing itself 
upon me. It's sheer horror." He 
spoke with unwonted intensity. 

Siefert was silent, and Vance 
turned to him again. 

"I say, doctor, are you particu- 
larly worried about Mrs.' Garden's 

A cloud overspread Siefert's coun- 
tenance, and he did not answer at 

"It's a queer case," he said at 
length, with an obvious attempt at 
evasion. "As I recently told you, 
it has me deeply puzzled. I'm bring- 
ing Kattelbaum up tomorrow." 

"Yes. As you say. Kattelbaum. 
Vance looked at the doctor dream- 
ily. "My anonymous telephone mes- 
sage last night mentioned radio- 
active sodium. But equanimity is 
essential. Yes. By all means. Not 

a nice case, doctor— not at all a 
nice case . . . And now I think 
we'll be toddlin'," Vance rose and 
bowed with formal brusqueness. 
Siefert also got up. 

"If there is anything whatever 
that I can do for you . . ."he 

"We may call on you later," 
Vance returned, and walked toward 
the archway. 

Siefert did not follow us, but 
turned and moved slowly toward 
one of the front windows, where he 
stood looking out, with his hands 
clasped behind him. We re-entered 
the hallway and found Sneed wait- 
ing to help us with our coats. 

We had just reached the door 
leading out of the apartment when 
the strident tones of Mrs. Garden's 
voice assailed us again. Floyd Gar- 
den was in the bedroom, leaning 
over his mother. 

"Your solicitude won't do you 
any good, Floyd," Mrs. Garden 
cried. "Being kind to me now, are 
you? Telephoning for the prescrip- 
tion — all attention and loving kind- 
ness. But don't think you're pull- 
ing the wool over my eyes. It 
won't make any difference. Tomor- 
row I change my will! Tomorrow 

We continued on our way out, 
and heard no more. 

Shortly after nine o'clock the next 
morning there was a telephone call 
from Doctor Siefert. Vance was still 
abed when the telephone rang, and 
I answered it. The doctor's voice 
was urgent and troubled when he 
asked that I summon Vance imme- 
diately. Vance slipped into his Chi- 
nese robe and sandals and went into 
the anteroom. 

'It was nearly ten minutes before 
he came out again. 

"Mrs. Garden was found dead in 
her bed this morning," he drawled. 
"Poison of some kind. I've phoned 
Markham, and we'll be going to the 
Garden apartment as soon as he 
comes. A bad business, Van — very 

Markham arrived within half an 
hour. In the meantime Vance had 
dressed and was finishing his second 
cup of coffee. 

"What's the trouble now?" Mark- 
ham demanded irritably, as he 
came into the library. "Perhaps 
now that I'm here, you'll be good 
enough to forego your cryptic air." 

Vance looked up and sighed. "Do 

"Notifying me?" Markham set 
down his cup. 

"About Mrs. Garden. She's dead. 
j Found so this morning in bed. Prob- 
ably murdered." 

"Good God!" 

"Yes, quite. Not a nice situation. 
No. The lady died some time during 

wo must be peifectly frank with 
each other. The usual conventional 
considerations of your profession 
must be temporarily put aside. I 
shall be altogether candid with you 
and trust that you can see your way 
to being equally candid with me." 
Siefert. who had taken a chair 

I near the door, looked at Vance 

the night — exact hour unknown as 

yet. Siefert says it might have j trifle uneasily 

been caused by an overdose of the j »i rcgret that t do not under . 

sleeping medicine he prescribed for gt and what you mean." he said in 

her. It's all gone. And he says 
there was enough of it to do the 
trick. On the other hand, he ad- 
mits it- might have been something 
• else." - 


Markham pushed his cup aside 
with a clatter and lighted a cigar. 
"Where's Siefert now?" he asked. 
"At the Gardens*. Very correct. 
Standing by, and all that. The nurse 
phoned him shortly after eight this 
morning — it was she who made the 
discovery when she took Mrs. Gar- 
den's breakfast in. Sierert hastened 
over and after viewing the remains 
and probing round a bit called me. 
Said that, in view of yesterday's 
events, he didn't wish to go ahead 
until we got there." 

"Well, why don't we get along?" 
snapped Markham, standing up. 

Vance sighed and rose slowly 
from his chair. 

"There's really no rush. The lady 
can't elude us. And Siefert won't 
desert the ship." 

"Hadn't we better notify Heath?" 
suggested Markham. 

"Yes— quite," returned Vance, as 
we went out. "I called the ser- 
geant -just after I phoned you. He's 
been up half the night working on 
the usual ' police routine. Stout 
fella. Heath. Amazin' industry. But 
quite futile." 

Miss Beeton admitted us to the 
Garden apartment. She looked 
drawn and worried, but she gave 
Vance a faint smile of greeting 
which he returned. 

"I'm 'beginning to think this 
nightmare will never end, Mr. 
Vance," she said. 

Vance nodded sombrely, and we 
went on into the drawing-room 
wh.ere Doctor Siefert, Professor 
Garden, and his son were awaiting 

"I'm glad you've come, gentle- 
men," Siefert greeted us, coming 

Professor Garden sat at one end 
of the long davenport, his elbows 
resting on his knees, his face in 
his hands. He barely acknowledged 
our presence. Floyd Garden got to 
his feet and nodded abstractedly in 

our direction. A terrible change 
seemed to have come over him. He 
looked years older than when we 
had left him the night before. 

"What a hell of a situation!" he 
mumbled, focusing watery eyes on 
Vance. "The mater accuses me last 
night of putting Woody out of the 
way, and then threatens to cut me 
off in her will. And now she's 
dead! And it was I who took charge 
o. the prescription. The doc says it 
could have been the medicine that 
killed her." 

Vance looked at the man sharply. 

"Yes, yes," he said in a low, 
sympathetic tone. "I thought of all 

"I Called the Sergeant Just After 
I Phoned You." 

that, too, don't y' know. But it 
certainly won't help you to be mor- 
bid about it." 

"For God's sake," Garden burst 
out, "it's up to you to find out the 
truth. I'm on the spot— what with 
my going out of the room with 
Woody yesterday, my failure to 
place his bet, then the mater's ac- 
cusation, and that damned will of 
hers, and the medicine. You've got 
to find out who's guilty . . ." - 

As he was talking the door bell 
had rung, and Heath came up the 

Vance went to Garden and, put- 
ting a hand on the man's shoulder, 
urged him back into his chair. 
"Come, buck up," he said; "we'll 
need your help, and if you work up 
a case of jitters you'll be useless." 

"But don't you see how deeply in- 
volved I am?" Garden protested 

"You're not the only one in- 
volved," Vance returned calmly. He 
turned to Siefert. "I think, doctor, 
we should have a little chat. Pos- 

sit down and have a cup of coffee 
while I enjoy this cigarette. Really, 
y'know, it's deuced hard to be lu- 
cid on the telephone." He poured 
a cup of coffee, and Markham re- 
luctantly sat down. "And please 
don't sweeten the coffee," Vance 
went on. "It has a delightfully sub- 
tle bouquet, and it would be a pity 
to spoil it with saccharine." 

Markham, frowning defiantly, put 
three lumps of sugar in the cup. 
• "Why am I here?" he growled. 

Vance drew deeply on his ciga- 
rette and settled back lazily in his I sibly we can get the matter of your 
chair. "Siefert phoned me this I patient's death straightened out a 

morning, just before I called you. 
Explained he didn't know your pri- 
vate number at home and asked me 
to apologize to you for not notifying 
you direct" _ _ 

bit. Suppose we go upstairs to the 
study, what?" 

In the study Vance went directly 
to the point. 

"Doctor, the time has come when 

his suavest manner. 

"I merely mean," replied Vance 
coolly, "that I am fully aware that 
it, was you who sent me the anony- 
mous telephone message Friday 

Siefert raised his eyebrows slight- 

"Assuming, for the sake of argu- 
ment," he said with deliberation, 
"that it was I who phoneo you Fri- 
day night, what then?" 

Vance watched the man with ■ 
faint smile. 

"It .might -be.- don't y' know," he 
said, "that you were cognizant of 
the situation here, and-that you had 
a suspicion — or- let us say, a fear — 
that something tragic was impend- ■ 
ing." Vance took out his cigarette 
case and lighted a cigarette. "I 
fully understood the import of that 
message, doctor— as you intended. 
That is why I happened to be here 
yesterday afternoon. The signifi- 
cance of your reference to the 
Aeneid and the inclusion of the word 
'equanimity' did not escape me. I 
must say, however, that your ad- 
vice to investigate radio-active so- 
dium was not entirely clear — al- 
though I think I now have a fairly 
lucid idea as to the implication. 
However, there were some deeper 
implications in your message, and 
this is the time, d' ye see, when 
we should face this thing together 
with comple-te honesty." 

Siefert brought his eyes back to 
Vance in a long appraising glance, 
and then shifted them to the window 

"Yes, I did send you that mes- 
sage. I realize that nothing can be 
gained now by not being frank with 
you . . . The situation in this house- 
hold has bothered me for a long 
time, and lately I've had a sense of 
imminent disaster." 

"How long have you felt this pre- 
monition?" asked Vance. 

"For the past three months, I 
should say. Although I have acted 
as the Gardens' physician for many 
years, it was not until last fall that 
Mrs. Garden's changing condition 
came to my notice. I thought little 
of it at first, but, as it grew worse 
and I found myself unable to diag- 

nrtoe if cai icfo ntnrilv & ^itrioilfi Sus- 
picion forced itself on me that the 
change was not entirely natural. I 
began coming here much more fre- 
quently than had been my custom, 
and during the last couple of 
months I had felt many subtle un- 
dercurrents in the various relation- 
ships of the household, which I had 
never sensed before. Of course, I 
knew that Floyd and Swift never 
got along particularly well — that * 
there was some deep animosity and 
jealousy between them. I also knew 
the conditions of Mrs. Garden's will. 
Seifert paused with a frown. 
"As I say, it has been only re- 
cently that I have felt something 
deeper and more significant in all 
this interplay of temperaments; and 
this feeling grew to such propor- 
tions that I actually feared a vio- 
lent climax of some kind — especial- 
ly as Floyd told me only a few 
days ago that his cousin intended 
to stake his entire remaining funds 
on Equanimity in the big race yes- 
terday. So overpowering was my 
feeling in regard to the whole situa- 
tion here that I decided to do some- 
thing about it, if I could manage it 
without divulging any professional 
confidences. But you saw through 
my subterfuge." >< 

Vance nodded. "I appreciate your 
scruples in the matter, doctor. I 
only regret that I was unable to 
forestall these tragedies. That, as 
it happened, was beyond human 
power." Vance looked up quickly. 
"By the by, doctor, did you have 
any definite suspicions when you 
phoned me Friday night?" 

Siefert shook his head with em- 
phasis. "No. Frankly, I was baf- 
fled. I merely felt that some sort 
of explosion was imminent." 

Vance smoked a while in silence. 
"And now, doctor, will you be so 
good as to give us the full detail* 
about this morning?" 

Siefert drew himself up in his 

"There's practically nothing to 
add to the information I gave you 
over the phone. Miss Beeton called 
me a little after eight o'clock and 
informed me that Mrs. Garden had 
died some time during the night 
She asked for instructions, and I 
told her that I would come at once. 
I was here half an hour or so later. 
I could find no determinable cause 
for Mrs. Garden's death, and as- 
sumed it might have been her heart 
until Miss Beeton called my atten- 
tlon to the fact that thi> h»Hi T ?f — r 

medicine sent by the druggist wae 
empty ..." 

"By the by, doctor, what was the 
prescription you made out for your 
patient last night?" 

"A simple barbital solution." 

"And I believe you told me on 
the telephone that there was suffi- 
cient barbital in the prescription to 
have caused death." 

"Yes," Doctor Siefert nodded. "If 
taken at one time." 

"And Mrs. Garden's death wae 
consistent with barbital poisoning?" 

"There was nothing to contradict 
such a conclusion," Siefert an- 
swered. "And there was nothing to 
indicate any other cause."

Verona Glencoe 

Highway Grading 

Has Been Neglected As to Sur- 
facing Going On Three Years 
And a Howl Is Going Up 

Numerous complaints have been 
mode to the editors of the Advertiser 
About the neglect of the State High- 
way Department hi surfacing the 
Verona-Olencoe road, which has 
been graded now going on three 
years, and the citizens living along 
this highway have been making a 
howl as to its 'present impassible 
condition. They say if the road had 
been left as it was, it would be more 
servicable than it is at the present 
time. • 

Last fall gravel was spread on part 
of the road, beginning at the Glen- 
coe end and after spreading it for 
three or four miles, stopped, took the 
trucks and men to Carroll county tc 
do similar work. Now the citizens 
living on this road are wrathy. They 
say, while this river gravel helps 
somewhat, the Job of spreading it 
should have been finished instead of 
going to another county and spread- 
ing gravel on another road. 

School busses and milk trucks have 
to pass over this route— when pos- 
sible—and frequently farmers have 
to carry their milk product a mile tc 
make connection with the trucks. 

One of the farmers on this route 
tells us that an entirely new road ir 
Harrison county is in course of con- 
struction, and most of the people 
along this new route had not asked 
for it. And still it is said there is 
no money in the State Highway 
funds to complete the Verona-Olen- 
coe route. It appears there is s 
screw loose some place. 

The good citizens in Kenton co- 
unty, on Taylor Mill road, are also 
up-in-arms because that highway ir 
not completed. Work has begun 
and stopped according to their state- 

Apparently this section of Ken- 
tucky has been neglected. We note 
that new highways in the western 
part of the state are being built in 
numerous localities and unfinished 
work completed. Why is it? i

Friday 2,284 Acres of Land For 

Reformatory of Young 

Criminals Selected 

Friday, a Commission to purchase 
a site for a new reformatory for 
young criminals, bought 2,884 acres 
of land in Oldham county, for the 
new building. The purchase price 
as announced by the Governor was 
$141,003, an average of $48.53 am' acre 
The tract is composed of 30 farms 
On the south it is bounded by the 
Louisville-LaGrange Highway, No. 22 
and the Louisville & Nashville Rail- 
road; on the east by Dawkins Road 
and Sue Bennett Lane, on the north 
by Harrod's Creek, and on the west 
by Cedar Point Road. 

On the site will be built immedi- 
ately, Governor Chandler announc- 
ed, a minimum strength prison tc 
house approximately 2,500 men, and 
cost from $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 
Funds for the cost of the prison were 
appropriated by the 1936 Legislature 
and Governor Chandler said he ex- 
pected them to be augmented short- 
ly by a Federal allotment. 

The new prison farm, the Gover- 
nor declared, would be self-sustain- 
ing and would afford agricultural 
occupation for prisoners now idle 
Several hundred selected convicts 
now housed in a temporary prison 
camp will be sent to the new site 
next week to help clear it and erect 
temporary buildings. Contracts for 
actual construction of the new prison 
buildings will be awarded in the 
near future, the Governor said. *

doned State Reformatory at Frank- 
fort, the new prison will be used pri- 
marily for youthful prisoners and 
first offenders. The more hardened 
type of eriminals, Governor Chand- 
ler said, will be kept at the ©tate 
Penitentiary at Eddyville, which is 
being remodeled.

Saturday night at the Walton, 
gym., before a large and enthusiastic 
audience, the curtain was brought 
down on the 33rd District basketball 
tournament. The district being com- 
posed of Boone County teams. And 
as an added feature the second 
teams from each school participated. 

The referees, Colwell and Austing 
very capably handled the games and 
no harsh criticism was heard from 
either spectators, players or coaches, 
and it seems the meet should be 
termed a success — being a double or 
triple success from a Walton stand- 
point — in that good crowds were in 
attendance and both of her teams 
came through winners. 

The tourney got under was Thurs- 
day night, and the first game was 
between the second teams of New 
Haven and Hamilton, in which Ham- 
ilton was the winner 28 to 19. The 
first teams of thase two schools 
clashed next and again Hamilton 
landed on top, 32 to 19. At the half 
they were in front 18 to 9. Hubbard 
led the victors attack with 14 points 
and for N. H. Griffith was best With 
8. The final game of this session was 
between Walton and Hebron and the 
Bearcats had little difficulty in scor- 
ing a 48 to 9 win, although Hebron 
was leading 9 to 8 at the half. De- 
Moisey tallied 28 points for Walton 
and Huey scored half of Hebron's 

Friday night the session was again 
opened by two second teams, Flor- 
ence and Hebron, the latter winning 
22 to 12. Following, the first fives 
of Hamilton and Burlington met, and 
the Farmers chalked up a 47 to 11 
win. At the half Hamilton led 22 
to 7. For the winners Williamson 
accounted for 15 points and Clore 
registered 7 for the losers. Florence 

the intermission 16 to 14. Osborn 
was high scorer for the Bearcats 
with 13 points and Reeser led the 
Knights with 9 tallies. 

Saturday afternoon there were two 
second team games. The first, be- 
tween Walton and Hamilton, was 
won by Walton 24 to 21. In the sec- 
ond, Hebron downed Burlington 26 
to 15. 

Saturday night saw the finals be- 
ing played in each division. 'At 7:30 
Walton and Hebron met to decide 
the second team championship of 
the county. . The locals soon took • 
the lead and at the rest period were 
ahead 14 to 8. In the last half the 
Cubs scored 16 points to their op- 
ponents 2, to win 30 to 10. McElroy 
was high scorer for Walton with 13 
points and Thornton was next with 
6. Conner connected for 6 points 
for Hebron. 

In the main event, the W.-V 
Bearcats and the Hamilton Farmers 
vied for the high honors, and the 
Cats brought home the bacon by 
subdueing the Farmers 37 to 19 
After a few minutes of play the 
locals took the lead and were never 
headed by their foes, but increased 
the margin between them as the 
game progressed. At the end of the 
first half, Walton was leading 19 to 
8. Following is the box score: 

A photograph of Alfred P. Murrah 
of Oklahoma Crty, who has been 
named federal district judge in 
Oklahoma by President Roosevelt. 
The designation of Murrah, who is 
only thirty-three, is seen as the first 
step toward rejuvenation of the fed- 
eral judiciary. If the United States 
senate confirms the appointment. 
Murrah will be the youngest judge 
on the federal brn-h.
